Jimmy Caterine has been an independent musician since he started in 1980 with progressive metal band from Hawaii, Sacred Rite. Influenced heavily by European guitarists like David Gilmour, Micheal Schenker and Ritchie Blackmore, his playing took on an emotional feel. Caterine was also influenced by classical composers Bach, Mahler and Listz.
Jimmy Caterine has 16 album credits to his name, all indie. Though only donning the cover of one magazine in 1985, there have been hundreds of reviews and articles written about Caterine and the bands he has played with - including Hit Parader (USA), Kerrang (UK), and Burn (Japan).
With Sacred Rite And Tragic Nancy, Jimmy has performed on many stages from smoke filled bar to packed stadium. The shows he has opened include Ozzy Osbourne, Quiet Riot, Triumph, Ronnie Montrose, Yngwie Malmsteen, REO Speedwagon and many more.
Aside from his original projects, Caterine was the guitarist for the Honolulu run of Rocky Horror Picture Show which ran for 3 months in 1987. In 1995 he backed up blues/country vocalist Sami Jo Cole to celebrate her triumph over cancer. And in '97-'98 he played with Time Machine, a classic rock tribute band, geared towards corporate conventions in Las Vegas, NV.
After a short hiatus from playing due to an injury to his left arm in 1999, Caterne decided to do an all instrumental album featuring some of his best work. In April of 2001 Caterine's automobile collided with three other cars leaving him permanently blind in his left eye and postponing his solo debut.
In May 2002, independent metal label, Sentinel Steel released a complete compilation of the original 3 Sacred Rite classics in two volumes 'Rites of Passage volume 1 & 2.
Presently, Caterine is content in recording and releasing his solo work for whomever may want to share in his musical experience. He has released two solo projects- 2003's CATERINE:Cognition and on Jan 20, 2005 he released what he claims to be some of the best lead guitar work he has ever done on a CD entitled CATERINE:Fear-Pain-Love. He claims it will be his last solo project for a while as he is presently working on two collaborative projects that will be taking up most of his time. One of those projects is with former Sacred Rite bandmates.
