ABOUT

Lead Guitarist with approximately 40 years experience playing the guitar. Approximately 18 years experience playing in bands both live and some studio work over that period of time. I have done original music and cover bands and right now am primarily interested in forming a classic rock tribute band primarily focused on 70's/80's hard rock, maybe some metal. I also have about 20 years working in the record business in the 80's, 90's and 2000's.
