DOUG PRZYBYSZEWSKI was born in Florida Panhandle and started playing guitar at 16. His influences are Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Molly Hatchet, and Paul Gilbert. This is his first time playing bass for a band, and he is really learning to become a competent bassist and not a flashy guitar player who plays bass. He is still new enough on bass that he dosen't have any real gear prefences. As long as it's professional equipment, then he says he will try anything, at least once. Right now, he is digging the Aguilar and Tech 21 amplification, and Ibanez and Schecter guitars. He said, "I've heard rockers are supposed to be cool, but really I am just a nerd with entirely too many hobbies. Music is one of those, and I am fortunate to be able to partner with an experienced group of people who love what they do, and are quite good at it. I don't take myself too seriously, but I do take commitments seriously. We are going to have a good time, become a better band and have fun doing it."
