Glen Longenhagen hails from Catasauqua, Pa and
is a proficient self taught drummer, guitarist and keyboardist. Glen comes from a large family of nine and has spent much
of his earlier years creating music with them. Glen has two sons and both of them musical in their own rite. They occasionally
jam with the old man from time to time.
Glen has been in numerous bands during the course
of his life. Some of the notable bands are: 80's punk/new wave band the "Complaints" (which he and his younger brother Greg
still play out when the occasion calls), "Backstage" from the Reading area and finally "Retro Specs" with sharing guitar and
keyboard duties with older brother Rick.
Glen has some great guitars in his collection,
including the Ibanez Roadstar, Epiphone Genesis, Epiphone 6-12 doubleneck EDS 1275, Washburn EA220 acoustic doubleneck, Dean
Hardtail 6-12 doubleneck (I see a pattern here) just to name a few.
When playing out, he relies on his Ernie Ball
Music Man “John Petrucci” signature model, his 6-12 doubleneck Music Man " Silhouette" and occasionally his Schecter
Yes, Genesis, RUSH, Kansas , Beatles, Byrds,
Tom Petty, Van Halen, and too many more to mention...
