ABOUT

I'm the guy that can take a simple Rock beat and turn it on it's ear! How? It has nothing to do with the actual notes played but everything to do with the attitude behind each note played. I've always played as if I have a chip on my shoulder with something to prove and treat each opportunity as if it were my last. Currently playing with Michelle Leigh but would like to develop an 80's Tribute Act that focuses more on the music of the 80's Melodic Hard Rock scene that maybe were not the hits so widely known and played now but still kicked ass!

Influences

Growing up in the 80's it is hard to not recognize the influence of the Hair Bands of the era. Whitesnake, White Lion, Bon Jovi, Cinderella, Skid Row - the list goes on and on. I am not much into the grunge music scene that came afterwards but really like a lot of the music that is coming out today. Some of my favorite drummers are: Mike Portnoy, Tommy Aldridge, Tommy Lee, The Rev, Shannon Larkin.
