Influences

I was guiding river trips for Far Flung Adventures and others over about a 13 year time period in Lajitas, Terlingua, Study Butte. This was a very important part of my musical journey through experience. I got to know personally some who have had a big influence on me. Steven Fromholz, Butch Hancock, Tommy Hancock, Jimmy Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely, Jerry Jeff Walker, Robert Earl Keen, Kevin Welch and Peter Rowan to name a few. My favorite guitar players are guys like Mike Campbell, Tom Petty, Jimmy Vaughn, Bill Kirchner, guys who play to the song. I love hard rockin' R&B like Delbert McClinton's Band. I still have friends in West Texas and just played out there this past New Years. Rock On!
