Born in Dallas, Texas, Gary Myrick played guitar and sang in Dallas and neighboring Fort Worth starting as a teenager. Eventually, he built a significant enough reputation to be asked to join Austin, Texas band Krackerjack, replacing Stevie Ray Vaughan who had left to begin his solo career. After relocating to Los Angeles, California, he formed Gary Myrick & the Figures, releasing a self-titled album in 1980 which included the hit "She Talks in Stereo. Myrick rebuilt Havana 3AM and completed the Texas Glitter and Tombstone Tales album in 1996 with Tom Felicetta and Jamie Chez. Moving towards roots rock, Myrick switched to a stripped down, acoustic approach for his 2001 solo release, Waltz of the Scarecrow King. Reinvent the Gods, featuring a cover of The Rolling Stones' "As Tears Go By," was self-released in 2004.

Havana 3am was the band of bassist Paul Simonon formed shortly after his previous band, The Clash, officially broke up in 1986. The band consisted of Simonon on bass, American musician Gary Myrick on guitar, Nigel Dixon from the British band Whirlwind on lead vocals, and Travis Williams, a drummer who they found by a newspaper announcement. In essence, it was a rockabilly band with a heavy Latino and reggae influence. The band recorded a self-titled album in Japan in 1991.

Dylan can be seen holding this guitar on the cover of his album" Nashville Skyline" and playing it at the Isle of Wight concert(with the Beatles in attendance).

Gary Myrick is the perfect addition to Havana 3AM. He appears to play his axe effortlessly while producing that melodic Texas twang on songs such as Tex Pawn Shop & The Tremelos. It's completely different but while you're at it pick up Gary's first 3 solo LP's. They're also possess the wonderfulness of his greatness. They disbanded and Myrick put togrther "Texas Glitter & Tombstone Tales". His 3 piece outfit pump out some the best rock/country/blues tunes I've heard in years! Give it a spin, It's awsome amigo!
