Terry Waterman is a self-taught guitar player who learned to play by ear on his dad's acoustic guitar and his Electric Flying V, which was formerly owned by Lonnie Mack. Terry began performing professionally at 14 on a 1966 Fender Stratocaster with his great friend and keyboard player/vocalist Art Valentino in such venues as the Beverly Hills Supper Club, The Lookout House, Johnson's Party Boat, and other nightclubs they weren't old enough to be in. Over the years he has remained a Strat player, heavily influenced by Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughn. He has formed other bands, including the Waterman Project and the TW Allstars. Terry is a passionate player who puts great emphasis on feeling the music and prefers creating unique leads while staying within the foundation of the songs. Terry has been fortunate enough to play in his TW Allstars Band over the years alongside some extremely talented musicians with very different musical backgrounds, such as former Kool and the Gang drummer Jj Yates, vocalist/drummer Joe Clooney, cellist/vocalist/songwriter Michael G. Ronstadt, guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Josh Heisel, vocalist Bruno Walsh, drummer John Phillips of the John Erwin Band, and vocalist/songwriter/guitarist Doug McComas of Stone Mountain Mafia. Terry feels he has learned something musically from all of these musicians, while gaining lasting friendships.
