Influences

60's child/Classic Rock and all the greats from that era. John Bonham, Carmine Appice and many more of the greats of that time for Rock & Blues.Tony Williams, Alan White & Billy Cobham for fusion. Neil Peart for Progressive Rock, Scott Johnson for Drum and Bugle Corps/Rudimental playing & marching. My youthful instructors, all of them. Classical music/Spiritual music. Influences are more drummers than others. Amazed by Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, and anyone that can hold their own with their instruments. Jazz&Blues are becoming my new infatuations. I like good musicianship, and any of it, all types and styles impress me for the work put in to achieve the end result and abilities.
