Tim Kleiman – Guitar
Initially, it was the visual side of rock and roll that prompted Tim’s journey into music. Captivated by the costumes and theatrics of the band KISS, at age five he began taking guitar lessons.
After a stint playing violin in the school orchestra, he began forming rock bands, and later he was part of the Seattle music scene during the grunge era. Tim attended The Evergreen State College, where he obtained a B.A. in music.
Over the years Tim has written, recorded and toured with many bands, including jam band Spirit Union Revival, Ready, Willing & Abel, Primal Order, Culprit, and R&B/metal group The Seventh Hour. In addition to covering the guitar duties for LIVE FROM EARTH, Tim is a touring member of the legendary 80’s heavy metal band Culprit, and teaches guitar and bass lessons.

GVD released three highly acclaimed albums and toured with the likes of Linkin Park, Fuel, and the actual Pat Benatar!
