Older guitarist (41) looking for a drummer or band to play with.

I want to eventually get something together to play some shows out. I'm into bands like The Gorrilaz, Sex Pistols, The Who, NY Dolls, Bowie, old Rolling Stones, The Clash, Pulp, Cheeseburger, the Kinks, the Stooges, Badfinger.

My playing style is basic rhythm and my favorite guitarists are Pete Townshend, Steve Jones, and Johnny Thunders. I play mostly bar chords but I'm trying to expand my playing style.

I like basic raw rock but with melodies. I'm not into screamo or fast punk. Nothing against the occasional fast song or two but every song sounding like the Ramones on speed bores the hell out of me.

I've got good gear and if needed would pitch in or be willing to buy any additional stuff that we might need. I also have a small truck that could be used to transport gear.

I'm not a musician, I learned to play guitar by listening to songs and playing along. I've been playing for 20 years but mostly by myself and would really like to get a group going.

I would like to play originals with the occasional cover thrown in. I'm 41 and have a job but no family commitments. I need a creative outlet am serious about doing this.

My goal is to play some shows and maybe make an album. If anyone wants to jam to see if anything's there send me an email.

I've gotten some replies but not really what I'm looking for, here's a link to riffs of mine (just me playing into an IPad) to give you an idea of what I'm into:
