ABOUT

After playing guitar for a while, I began to realize that there were a lot of guys out there who were better lead guitarists than I, plus all the bands I played in could never find anyone who could play bass, so I decided to switch to the bass guitar, it was perfect. I never had a bass lesson, but the bass was very natural for me.

In the end, it's "the music" that spans generations and brings people together. It always has from the day the first note was played on this earth. "Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything" Plato. It is what allows us to forget about our problems and for one small moment in time, allows us to truly experience life as God intended. I am honored and humbled to be part of this great experience called Rock n Roll! I hope you come along with me on our musical journey to bring people to together through music and make the world a better place.

Influences

My early influences were the Beatles, Cream, YES, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and everyone who fashioned the music of the 60's, 70's & 80's. As for Bassists: Paul McCartney (naturally), Chris Squire and Jack Bruce were my biggest idols and is why I bought a Gibson EB3 and a Rickenbacker and still play them both today.
