Influences

Influences are just too many to list here.....however with regard to my drumming; The learning process is eternal. With so many great drummers out there today, (young and and not so young), it is sometimes difficult and risky to define your style and labeling yourself inadvertently to a certain style exclusively. That said, very often I find myself relying on the foundation of my humble beginnings by listening to the Master of Syncopation Mr. David Garibaldi of T.O.P., for inspiration and who launched me into the world of Funk drumming. I also admire Mr. Dave Weckl who is considered by many to be the best drummer on the planet and for his introduction to Fusion in my drumming career. One other great drummer's style I'd like to mention here and who I truly admire and respect is the intricate and super innovative Antonio Sanchez for his unique style and perfect mastery of rhythms and timing subdivision signatures over the kit ~ **

**Disclaimer:
This is in no way implying that my drumming is like any of the aforementioned TITAN Percussionists but rather, that I'm always striving for one day being able to play & sound like any of them instead. LOL!
