Too many influences to list over this number of years. Look, here's the short of it: what I'd like to do is work in a cover band, play some gigs, make a few dollars, and enjoy every minute of it. I'll travel for gigs. I'm well aware that SONY RECORDS is NOT 'waiting in the wings' to sign any old, fatted, balding, drummer for anything, so please, if you're over the age of 30 and you want to 'work on your originals'....I wish you all the best, but please, just move on. Thanks. And this may or may not be important to some, but over the years I have pretty much mastered playing at lower db levels; 70-ish is about where I can average at. Some venues just don't seem to appreciate 85+db anymore...go figure.
