"He blew us away at his audition."
- Jeff Chamberlain on Paul Flynn
Originally from Silver Spring MD, Paul used to work at Chuck Levin's Music Center in Wheaton as a guitar repairman.
Paul joined NotEven after Dave Murphy left the band in 1988. Word has it that he saw the band's ad in the DC City Paper and thought to himself, "I'll join NotEven."
Since 1998, Paul has been the co-owner and head of the repair shop at TrueTone Music, located just eight blocks from the beach in Santa Monica CA. TrueTone is a one-stop shop for exceptionally high quality gear, impeccable instrument repairs and professional lessons. At TrueTone, Paul handles guitar repairs, intonations and general stress-free service.
As the late great singer-songwriter/musician Tommy Keene once wrote, "Truetone has an unbelievable selection of vintage guitars and cool boutique amps, lessons for the beginners (without the Burl Ives attitude) and a friendly staff that is attentive to the needs of the novice as well as the seasoned professional. And don’t be surprised if you run into Dave Edmunds, Chris Spedding or Nigel Tufnel from the legendary Spinal Tap."
Paul is currently working as a guitar tech with musician/songwriter Ry Cooder on The Prodigal Son Tour in the US, Canada and Europe.
