He then formed FIRST ROUND, and has performed regularly over the past 6+ years. Michael’s style of guitar playing made it an easy decision to join REBEL SOULS. His classic rock roots, and diligence on dialing-in the right tone, enhances his amazing ability to capture the soulful blues rock riffs of Mick Ralphs and the raw sounds of Paul Kossoff.
