Todd Silverstone – Bass/Vocals

Todd Silverstone began his music life as a drummer/vocalist while growing up in Michigan. His start began playing with childhood friends like Kevin Chown (Tony MacAlpine, Chad Smith, Tarja Turunen) and Brian Lord (Mitch Ryder) and continued to Minneapolis playing with bands such as "The Kings Machine" and former Toto front man "Fergie Frederiksen". Stone has spent many years traveling the U.S. and Canada sharing the stage with such acts as Ted Nugent, Tesla, Night Ranger, David Lee Roth, Ace Frehley, and Cinderella to name just a few. After a transplant to Milwaukee, he was introduced to the guys in the band, Photograph. Having always been a closet string player and songwriter, he was quite happy to join the guys as a bass player and back-up vocalist when the opportunity came up.

Stone's Gear: I guess I've always used Hamer basses. An assortment from the 80's and 90's. 4, 5, and 12 string, and a recently added home-built StoneOphonic 4 string fretless. Live, I run through an Ampeg SVT 7 Pro, a pair of Ampeg classic cabinets, Sansamp RB-1, DBX 166XL, Lexicon MX-200, Yamaha SPX-50, Senheiser G3 series wireless instrument and monitor systems, Mogami cables, DR DDT strings and Shure SCL-5 ear monitors. For at home I also use Ovation, Fender and Gibson electric and acoustic guitars. 

Drumming wise, I currently bang on a Pearl Birch Shell Kit, an array of Vic Firth sticks, and have always used Zidjian cymbals and DW pedals. Not being a computer head, I still like to write and record my personal stuff on the Boss BR-900 and use Roland V-drums. Wow…that is way too much gear!
