Guest Guitarist Taught Tinch and He's Also a Pilot
Thu., Nov. 20. 2014 1:14pm EST

There are three guitarists featured on our upcoming CD, Apoplectic. Our regular lead guitarist, Tom Tincha, plays on "God's Own Son" and "Under the Breath." Former APX drummer Bill "Moose" Rieger plays guitar on "Aaronic," "God Know You've Tried," and "This is from Paul." The other eight tracks are played by Wayne Bartley. Who is that?

An old friend of Tom Tincha's, Wayne has played on a number of singles we've already released this year, including "Jezebel," "Goodnews," "One More Wall," "One of Us Indeed," "Servin' the Father," and "Herman's Sermon." He's also recorded other songs for us that haven't been released yet, and we hope to use him for many more.

Wayne first met Tinch on the bus in grade school. Many years later, when they were both in their early twenties, Wayne became a guitar instructor, and Tinch came to him for lessons for about three months, even though Wayne says Tinch already had a reputation as an "awesome" guitarist.

ApologetiX sound man Greg Spack has also been a friend of Wayne's for quite some time. The rest of us met Wayne four or five years ago through Tinch. Wayne even played some guest guitar on stage with us in March 2011 at our concerts in Bessemer City NC and Alpharetta SC.

Over the years, Tinch has recommended Wayne to us numerous times as a possible guitarist option for live gigs. Consequently, when it became apparent that we'd need extra guitar help in the studio this year, Tinch gave us his blessing to get Wayne involved.

Wayne still works as a guitar instructor today, but at one time he was also a flight instructor (1987-88), a charter pilot for AirEast (1988-89), and a pilot for USAir (1989-90). He left his flying career to focus more fully on the guitar, and we're glad he did. He puts the "jet" in ApologetiX!

Too bad we've already spoofed "Jet Airliner" by Steve Miller. Of course, we could still do "Leaving on a Jet Plane" by Peter, Paul & Mary. Then again, if we asked Wayne to play that one, he might just hightail it back to the friendly skies.

We plan to run an in-depth interview with Wayne soon. Until then, you can hear more from him by ordering Apoplectic. Order the CD now and we'll send you a link for the downloads so you can start enjoying the tunes immediately.

Once it's in stock, we'll also send your CD plus a free second copy you can give as a gift. You can see the cover art, get the full track listing, and order the CD here:
