He got hooked on the bass guitar over 30 years ago and counts among his influences Steve Harris from Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath's Geezer Butler, Nikki Sixx (naturally!), Billy Sheenen, Marcus White, Jaco Pastorius, & Bootsy Collins. His gear of choice are Hartkee & Ampeg amps and Fender & Jackson basses. You may have seen Kevin around in Reign of Terror, a VA Beach based thrash metal band or as the bassist & vocalist for DOWNLOAD. He is currently with the Tidewater based 80s cover band Diatonic. No stranger to travel, Kevin has played shows from Maine to Florida doing the amphitheatre & festival circuit as well as hitting the bars & venues. In his own words :" I like it all.... Rock, Metal, Blues, Jazz, and Funk!"
Kevin has over 30 years of experience in the music industry starting in his home state of West Virginia. He began his music career playing bass, adding rhythm guitar along the way, and ultimately becoming the lead singer and songwriter in several original and cover bands throughout VA, PA, and WV. Kevin has been involved in all other aspects of music, including lights, sound, recording, and production. In a production capacity, he has worked with a variety of national acts, most notably RATT, Bryan Adams, Huey Lewis & The News, & Foreigner. His musical influences range from Dream Theater to Iron Maiden .
PAUL MUIR is the newest member of POISONOUS CRUE and is all about the guitar!
He hails from Detroit, Michigan where he began playing at the age of 13 and hasn't put it down since.
Paul moved to the Hampton Roads area of Virginia when he was 19 and has had success playing with several different local bands over the years. Currently playing with the band DIATONIC, which has been playing live shows and melting faces all over Hampton Roads for the past 6+ years, and you might even find him playing solo in the lobby of the local Tread Quarters... you never know!
His love of music expands over different genres, but mostly he enjoys playing all kinds of hard rock and heavy metal, anything from 70's rock, the 80's L.A. hair bands, all of the 80's heavy metal thrash scene, and the 90's grunge stuff too.
Ultimately, he is a fan of the guitar as an instrument, and just likes to have fun playing music with people who enjoy it as much as he does, and let the music do the talkin'... LOUD AND PROUD!!!
