Alex (LEX) Gabriel is a self taught musician and bass player.
Currently working with BLINDMAN,
His passion and intense driving style have pushed this band to a new level sonic resolve.
With some early mild success with bands
Toten and Forbidden Silence, he knew then
where all of his energy was to be focused.
As a bass player he understands the role he
plays, and play it he does.
While not super flashy he holds the bottom end while adding just enough tasty licks to give a
nice melodic blend to any ground
With a look, sound and style that perfectly
rounds out his band,
He truly will not disappoint.
From his early years as a young pup
on the New York City
Hard Rock Scene starting back in
the late '70s...
Pat NEVER fails to deliver....
From his start in his teens in the
groundbreaking band "Hammer"...
Going toe to toe with others way past his age..
"Kold Stown" in the '80s..
Would see this band blowing other bands
off the stage...
Would bring it complete..
A band about THE SONG....
Blindman 2017 reunites Peter and Alex Gabriel who played together in Forbidden Silence in the early 90s.
Inspired by legendary drummers like Mötley Crüe’ drummer Tommy Lee, Metallicas' Lars Ulrich and Led Zeppelins' John Bonham..
Peter aspires to combine the best elements of the classic bands into his performance style.
While flashy enough for a drummer, Peter is most content sitting in the back of the band as its strong heartbeat.
More focused on substance than style, he sees himself as a man of few words who is happiest making noise with a fast pair of sticks and the biggest possible bass drum.
At present, Peter is grateful to be making new music with his fellow band members and seeing where the music takes them.
