Mike Chamberlin- guitars, guitar synth
Mike has played guitar for more than 40 years. Born and raised in Illinois, Early influences were Jimmy Page, David Gilmour and Neal Schon. After a phase of assorted metal band influences, Mike shifted interest to more progressive music such as Yes, Kansas, Rush and later Dream Theater. After moving to SoCal in 1989, Mike joined the band Red Shift which played clubs throughout SoCal in the early 90's. Looking for a fresh musical direction, Mike left Red Shift to start Hit n' Run. After a great run in the 90's, Mike took a break from music to start and raise a family. Since enjoying a stable life with his family, the urge to play music resulted in a phone call to old bandmates to rekindle an old fire. Mike started up Trainwreck in 2008 and although the band members have changed throughout the years, Mike is the sole original member in the current lineup.
