The lead guitar solo was really impressive. If you are playing all the instruments I’m really impressed. Usually I can tell if this is the case, but this sounds pretty much like a band. Nice work!"

Tim Mainka wrote, performed and produced all the music--instrumentals, vocals, and lyrics.
A native of Les Paul's hometown in Wisconsin, Tim Mainka grew up in a household of musically active brothers.

He quickly started to teach himself Mötley Crüe and Guns 'N Roses songs. At age twelve, he picked up guitar and wrote his first power chord rock song. By age thirteen, he took up bass which became his forte in numerous bands, including the Waukesha based progressive instrumental rock trio, "Torque", in which he could show off his Billy Sheehan, Geddy Lee, Jaco Pastorius, Cliff Burton, Les Claypool inspired chops. Self-taught, Tim enthusiastically explored these instruments with confidence as he embarked upon his lifelong musical destiny.
