Since when do you evolve in music?

Chris :
At the very beginning of the 90's, with the band "Hotliners" made up of Jean-Michel Scali (Drums), Eric Varlet (Bass) and Robert Dupuy (Guitar), a band exclusively dedicated to original classic Rock compositions, then with Eric Nicolino (Guitar) with the band "KLAD", a band also influenced by Placebo, with which we won the RTL2 Pop-Rock Pre-tendencies contest in 2003. Then with my "big brother" Guy Zenouda, we formed the band "Blue Gin's" always classic Rock, with Adrien Brandeis on keyboards, Luca Tomacelli on bass and Richard Letourneau on drums, in parallel with the trio "Tres Hombres" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EW6A_Ec4HXA and "Nobody's Perfect" tribute Deep Purple https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJGLX4ZDwDc.
Then appeared "South Country Companions" tribute Lynyrd Skynyrd with Christian Grassart, then Salvatore Reina on drums, Franck Vaillon on bass, Guillaume Ozenda then Franck Wesling on keyboards, Guy Zenouda on guitar and Calvin Rico then Norbert Proust and Bernard Chabrol on guitars too. Out of this came the formation "Chris Whitesmith and the Southern Bros", a project I am working on today, with Southern Rock and Country influences.
