This is Dan Careless, he’s 29 and he’s JuggaNote’s third and final guitarist. Dan’s an old friend and long time supporter of the band, having lived and worked with each of the band members on various occasions over the past 15 years. After spending the last 7 years out of the country, Dan is back home and more than ready to rock out with is c**k out.
Front man BeSpoken had this to say about the new addition to what seems like a constantly changing line up: “I’ve been asking Dan to come back to Wales since he left, mainly to jam with the band. It was a shame D.P left but we’re all buzzing to have someone we’re already close to and who is on the same page musically take up the position of lead guitarist”.
When and why did you start playing guitar?
I started on my 15th or 16th birthday. I’ve always loved music so much, I couldn’t get enough out just listening so seemed a natural progression to start playing. From there I practiced 3-5 hours a day and haven’t really put the guitar down since.
What other instruments can you play?
I can play a little drums, I’ll have a jam on any instrument to make some noise. I’m not proficient on any other instrument though.
What bands have you been in? Any solo projects?
Been playing and writing since I was young, just bits and pieces of solo stuff. I’ve jammed with a few bands over the years, some with other band members before JuggaNote was around, done some session work so played a few gigs but never been a full time band member.
Who or what are your main musical influences?
Too many bands to mention. I’m mostly into rock and metal but I’ve loved hip hop since I was a kid. I appreciate a lot of music - playing guitar opened up my ears to a lot of other stuff, but a lot of the gangster shit got in the way.
Any non-musical influences?
Anybody who’s done anything with a positive effect. Authors like Jack Kerouac and Hunter S Thompson for highlighting different points of view with a ‘warts and all’ realistic perspective.
How do you feel about working with JuggaNote?
I’m excited, it’s about f*****g time! The chance to get to rock out with old friends - it’s gonna be awesome.
What are your Ideas or plans for the future musically?
Moving forward, being proactive, doing as much as we can with the massive potential we all have.Posted: May 7th, 2012 | Author: David | Filed under: blog | Comments Off
