Tim Kleiman - guitarist
Initially, it was the visual side of rock and roll that prompted Tim Kleiman's journey into music. Captivated by the costumes and theatrics of the band KISS, at age five he began taking guitar lessons. After a stint playing violin in the school orchestra, he began forming rock bands, and later he was part of the Seattle music scene during the grunge era. Tim attended The Evergreen State College, where he obtained a B.A. in music. Over the years Tim has written, recorded and toured with many bands, including jam band Spirit Union Revival, heavy metal heroes Culprit, and R&B/metal group The Seventh Hour. In addition to covering the guitar duties for LIVE FROM EARTH, Tim is a member of the tribute groups InDeepPurple and BlackR Sabbath, and teaches guitar.
Rick Zaccaro - bassist
Who better to bring the thunder than the San Fernando Valley's own Rick Zaccaro. This bass master provides the concrete foundation that was forged from years of assimilating Led Zeppelin and Rush albums. A veteran of the LA scene, Rick has had the pleasure of working with many hard rock bands including Sonomaris, The Seventh Hour, and most notably Green Vinyl Dream. GVD released three highly acclaimed albums and toured with the likes of Linkin Park, Fuel, and the actual Pat Benatar! Other credits include musical productions Spellbinder and Evel Knievel: The Rock Opera.
