Chad MacDonald -- (born October 27, 1971, in Hartford, CT) is a professional, freelance bass player who has worked with numerous national and local groups, as well as loaning out himself for studio tracks as hired. He started playing bass in his mid-teens. While in New England, Chad MacDonald was a member of The Flames, which released a moderately successful CD in 1999 entitled "Fast, Easy, Cheap." In 2003, Chad MacDonald relocated to Tempe, Arizona, from where he has toured nationally for several years with the likes of Jani Lane, Quiet Riot's Kevin DuBrow, Gene Loves Jezebel, and most recently, the BulletBoys. Within Arizona, he has been the bassist for Vinyl Revival and Unskinny Bop. In 2009, he started performing with Jeordie & The Mixology Project since he had known Jeordie from when Vinyl Revival was the backup band for Harmony Drive. Additionally, he has been endorsed by Pixotica Picks, Schecter Guitar Research in Burbank, CA, and 3 Amigos tequila.

His biggest professional influences have been Paul McCartney, Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath), Tom Petersson (Cheap Trick), Adam Clayton (U2), Duff McKagan (Guns 'N' Roses), and countless others.

In 2010, Chad MacDonald appeared with his Unskinny Bop bandmates in Hot Tub Time Machine as the band Poison because John Cusack was unsatisfied with the results from hired actors, so he hired a tribute band in hopes they could recreate their tribute performance within the filming schedule.

In addition to his unwavering love for music, Chad MacDonald is also a huge comic book fanatic, so he could have spent countless hours inside Comic Zone browsing or talking to Psycho Andy (even though he never actually did). In fact, upon their first introduction, he adamantly insisted Kay watch Iron Man because Iron Man is his favorite character ever. Likewise, he is a huge fan of Star Wars and of old-school World Wrestling Federation, especially for wrestlers like Rowdy Roddy Piper, Superfly Jimmy Snuka, the late Capt. Lou Albano, and George The Animal Steele.
