Influences

Way too many to name. As a guitarist, growing up it was Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page. Period.

Drummers: the heavy-handed, rock-steady, surprisingly deceptive un-4/4-time signature in John Bonham, Dave Grohl (say no more), the creative originality in Ginger Baker.

So many bands/artists (not in order). Steely Dan, John Mayer, Talking Heads, Cake. Pink Floyd, Santana, Zep, Elton John. Billy Joel. Amy Winehouse, Clapton, Traffic, Pat Metheny, Van Morrison, Stones, SRV, ABB, Nirvana, alt. 80s. Big band. Classic Jazz.
