Wyatt still remembers the first time he heard Van Halen on the radio while going to school on an early morning in 1978, and decided - right then and there - to pick up guitar, and he's been at it ever since.
"I never want to miss those opportunities to love and play music with my friends."
Jim started playing guitar when he was 17 years old and formed his first band at 18. He played lead guitar for the first couple of years but decided to switch to bass because there was a shortage of bassists who could also sing lead and background vocals.
Jim's played the club scene a lot during the 80's and 90's, usually 6-7 nights a week, and met all the local professional musicians. He's played a variety of styles and clubs, including country, rock and roll, metal, jazz, funk and rhythm and blues.
