Cooper is driven by music, pure and simple. He began playing the guitar at age 13, and was inspired by the song Since I’ve Been Lovin’ You by Led Zeppelin off Led Zeppelin III. Since then he's added Metallica, In Flames, Dream Theater, and many others to his list of bands that inspire him to keep pushing forward in an industry as challenging as this.
The first guitar I owned was a Tanglewood electric/acoustic. Shortly following this acquisition, his pursuit of the perfect guitar brought him to a Dean ML Baby in silver. Since then his continued search has added an Ernieball Musicman, John Petrucci Signature, an Ibanez Prestige 7 string, an Ibanez Jem, an OlP doubleneck, and an Epiphone Les Paul. The search never ends and his education in all things "gear" makes him a strong addition to the League Of Rock Crew.
He's in a band called ZeA and they've been playing together for almost 5 years. They're produced their first EP. Music is his life and his passion. A day is not complete for Cooper if he didn't have a song or a melody going through his head.
Cooper is The League Of Rock's Toronto Gear Tech and handles logistics. Anything which requires plugging in, or setting up, tearing down and tuning is his domain and we're proud to have him on the team.
