Keith Nelson, Guitar
"A bad day at rock-n-roll is better
than a good day at work….” That pretty much
sums up the lifestyle and chain of events that brought
small-town Pennsylvania born Keith Nelson to the city
of Los Angeles, the birth place of Buckcherry.
Iin the spring of 1996 when Keith met Josh Todd they
knew pretty early on that they were on to something. After
of string of miss-starts with a loose revolving band line
up, Sparrow, as they were previously known, was born.
Finally, a lineup was solidified and a string of high-profile
shows that bore a major label record deal would follow.
That band would go on to be re-christened Buckcherry in
1997 and record their self titled debut for Dreamworks
records, released in 1998.
Keith also co-wrote, played guitar, engineered, and
produced 3 songs with LA country-rocker Johnny Kaplan
as well as writing, playing ,engineering, and producing
the majority of the material for Detroit native Huck Johns
debut release on Capitol Records. He has also been lent
his skills to sessions for artists such as My Chemical
Romance, Papa Roach, All-American Rejects, Theory of a
Deadman, POD, Head Automatica, Vendetta Red, and Hoobastank
to name a few.
