BUCK69 Blues Rock

A Little Background Info

Tom Clawson    TRC@prodigy.net
Singer-Songwriter-Guitar Player for the Blues Rock Band (BUCK69).
Available for songwriting, production, band promotion and marketing.

I play electric and acoustic rhythm guitar and love my Taylor six string.
She is my mistress, and I write the melodies that she whispers to me in the deep dark of the night.

When songwriting, my lyrics are based on stories I’ve heard, stories I’ve been told and mainly my real life experiences. How does one move forward without looking back? Oscar Wilde said, "In the world there are only two tragedies. One is not getting what one wants and the other is getting it". So, if regrets are opportunities missed, things left unsaid and passions that aren’t pursued, then so far this has been a life of no regrets and I’ve learned that what is held lightly, can never be lost. Simplicity comes from letting go of what you want. - Lao tzu

In October of 1974 right before his 16th birthday, Tom woke up one morning and grabbed his Fender acoustic and his sleeping bag and decided to travel. With six dollars and change, the clothes on his back, a friends draft card and without telling anyone he headed out. Leaving Warren, Ohio and hitch hiking cross-country. Tom would stop in bars along the way playing old Hank Williams Sr., Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard songs. He would put his hat on the bar and use the few bucks he made to get something to eat. When he couldn’t find a place to sleep for the night he would sleep under the overpasses. Tom made it down to Galveston, TX where he worked on a shrimp boat and then eventually made his way back home. Started his own band, TC Rogers and the Blues Hamilton Band in the fall of 1975, and played a mix of country rock and blues-rock. Since those days Tom has been married, divorced, married again and has 3 sons. Spent 3 years in the U S Army military police, earned a degree in business management, currently manages a trucking company and has a small Internet Human Resource Software business. In 2004 persuaded by his oldest son Alex, Tom started playing music again and eventually they formed a band “BUCK69” in 2005. From his teenage days of hanging out with the Warren, Ohio chapter of the Outlaws, playing guitar in the bars, the booze, the drugs, guns, knives, friends shot and killed, friends dead from drugs, hitch hiking to Texas, hitch hiking to Florida, hitch hiking to New York, the older women, the younger women, the married women and life in general. Tom has plenty of stories to tell and lots of songs still to write!
