Composer and Musician in "Vassy Courtes" I play since 1980 starting with a band named "Crash" and eventually I became an studio session musician. I studied in "Conservatorio Nacional" in Mexico City and in 1996 rebuilded "Crash!" band with another two musicians. Circa 2012 I made a band named "Vassy Courtes" with my wife (who plays piano, keyborad and guitar) then joining Gabo Gavidia (bass) and Javier Bojorge (drums) to starting to make a recording work (still on it). We also made a record label named VC Records in what we will try to support indie artists. The bands I have played in: Crash! (1980-1997) with some inactivity periods. Tomatoes Truck Jazz Band (1984) Gestern (1986) Gypsy Countess (1989) Azúl (1991, Celaya, gto.) Alma Sólida (1991-1992, Celaya, Gto.)

Music is the most marvelous thing in the life. The music gave me, and still is giving me, the reasons to be.

Being better person. You can only lead with the example.

Espartacus!!!!! (confessing some scaring feeling in the beginning)
I´m not sure. Theres are a lot of technological advances but music today is mostly boring. I would try to make them to do things from their souls and feeling, not copying another ones.
It is great!!!!
Uh! also a lot of things!. Here in Mexico there is no truelly rock culture. The few good bands must to work in other things besides their playing.
Yes. I buy their records, assist, when I can, to their gigs and try to promote them.
Their way to play, performing in front the audience, their speaking there, their presence, vocal skills, a lot more....
