1 September 1976 (age 41)
Joey Eppard is best known as guitarist and lead vocalist for the NY-based experimental/progressive rock band 3.
In addition to his work with 3, Joey Eppard has worked with many other musicians and bands, including Parliament-Funkadelic and Bad Brains. He serves as a guitarist and vocalist for the psychedelic/funk band DRUGS: The Mis-Americans. During his career, he has performed throughout the United States and Europe, both in bands, and as a solo artist.
He also released a solo album in late 2002, called "Been to the Future," which features studio recordings of some of his solo work.
Most notable about Joey is his unique guitar technique that is best described as a combination of spanish flamenco style and slap bass techniques. Eppard's vocals have been described as 'siren-like', while his 'finger-pricked rhythms' have gained praise. He has stated that Led Zeppelin had a profound influence in shaping his musical talents. He also has listed such artists as King Crimson, Pink Floyd, and The Mahavishnu Orchestra as other influences.
He himself plays largely on Ovation roundbacks, presumably because of the similarity in the neck and action to an electric.
Joey Eppard is also the brother of Josh Eppard, who currently drums for Coheed and Cambria, and is the former drummer of 3, as well as current MC for his hip-hop side-project Weerd Science.
