Album Notes
We are very excited to bring you our first album. The eight original songs reflect our different musical skills and personalities. Some of our lyrics are uplifting, some are thoughtful and some are funny! But the music is always good. The three seasoned veteran players, bring you on an interesting musical journey for over an hour and fifteen minutes. All 8 originals are created and arranged by Rough Draft Rocks.

Gerry Cote - Guitar / Vocals
Gerry grew up listening to Cream, Hendrix, Trower, Jeff Beck, Humble Pie, The Who, Free, Allman Brothers, Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd and ZZ Top etc. In the 80’s and 90’s he was really into Christian Rock Bands, everything from Phil Keaggy to the Resurrection Band and in between. His most favorite current artists are Gov’t Mule, Joe Bonamassa and the Glenn Kaiser Band. At the age of 15, Gerry fell in love with Les Pauls and Marshall stacks. After God and Family, Gerry lives for Rough Draft Rocks. (PS Gibson and Marshall do not endorse me, but they should)!

Eddy K - Bass / Vocals
Ed has been playing 5/6 of his life. He believes Leo Fender was an alien! How else can you explain his vision. He studied privately and at the Musicians Institute in California, playing rock, jazz, country blues and original hybrids in trios to orchestras. Getting a variety of tones timbre to fit the music is his way of having a good time. A variety of strings, amps, instruments and technique are what you will hear with RDR. He likes to make things vibrate. GREAT FUN! Influences- McCartney, Kaye, Fielder, Entwhistle, Squire, Rocco, A. Johnson, P. Jackson , Jaco , Clarke, Miller, Wooten and etc etc etc long as they groove! Ed has a lot of fun in RDR making the music come alive. (Ed also likes Hamburgers)

Chad Rager - Drums / Vocals
Chad’s drumming is energetic, fluent and eclectic. Even during the most demanding passages, Chad Rager, with his diverse grounding in rock, funk fusion and jazz, is capable of combining technical prowess and sensitive musicality with an intense enthusiasm to create the quality of performance for which he has become so well known. Chad has traversed the United States with a succession of groups, playing everything from top 40 to jazz, big band and fusion. The experience gained was invaluable and accounts for the impressive versatility he now possesses.
He has performed and recorded with top artists such as pop-vocalist Deniece Williams, jazzman Charles Earland and pianist Roger Williams. The depth and scope of Chad’s talents are best put to the test through the original works created by his previous bands. One of which was the “Chad Rager Groove” and they released 2 CDs on Strokeland Records; 21st Century Groove and Groovin Hard. Currently Chad brings his amazing drum chops and soulful voice to Rough Draft Rocks. Chad is also endorsed by Sabian Cymbals, Maxwell Drums, Trick Drums, Humes & Berg Cases, Aquarian Drumheads and Vic Firth Sticks.

Kick back, Relax and turn it up to 11! Gerry, Ed & Chad
