Tommy Gee Tells the
• Drum lessons at age 7 thru 14
• Self-taught in bass guitar, guitar and mandolin
• Studied violin for two years
• Performed with many original bands both on Long
Island and NYC along with stints in two popular cover bands
East Coast and Hollywood knights
I played bass guitar in Man-ster,
a famous Long Island jazz-rock fusion group which was popular
in NYC and a staple of the legenday CBGB's club and legacy.
Man-ster appeared on the famous 'Live at CBGB's' album which
was distributed by Atlantic Records.
Man-ster then signed a production
deal with Genya Ravan ('Ten Wheel Drive'), on her own record
label, Polish Records. Also signed to her label, was Ronnie
Spector, who I had the opportunity to play with. Genya was
close to some the of the Saturday Night Live crew at the
time, especially the late Gilda Radner who loved Man-ster's
Remaining in touch with Hilly Krystal, owner of
CBGB's, I performed at the club with two more of my own
original bands - T.V.M.D. and Pets on the Couch. T.V.M.D.
was the second headliner for The Bongos opening shows at
several larger Long Island clubs.
During this time period - early
'80s - I had the opportunity to play bass in an acoustic
trio named Robal which featured two other members from Man-ster.
Robal was managed by Bruce Springsteen's former manager,
Mike Appel, who financed the project intended to be released
on Columbia Records.
After years of musical - medical
- and family tragedies, my living spirit has come forth
with 'Life Rock' - an eclectic compilation of music styles,
tones, timbres, and provocative poetry - a minstrel waterfall.
Recorded under my personal creation, The Planeteers,
'Life Rock' mirrors our peaks and valleys, realities, fantasies,
the good and bad of life on Planet Earth, and beyond.
I truly hope your hearts and souls are motivated - imagination activated by the music of The Planeteers.
I thank you for your spirits,
curiosity, and attention. - Tommy Gee
