ABOUT

35+ years...of playing... not all great....but I’m a raw 80’s metal or good solid rock...I play until the Sheetrock cracks...Don’t be down on my age...you’d guess I was 36 and you see I act like 26...Died from pneumonia 2 1/2 years ago...They said it was a miracle... so now I live to play...I design and build my own tube amps and just saying fu*kIN “Clean “ ...gets you tossed out the window...I’ve got tons of riffs...I’m self taught , with influences...I can rip The Scorpions, Accept, Ratt...and of course Ozzy...but I’m also talented in Blues and a SRV, Billy Gibbons kinda funk..,sh*t...when you’ve been playing this long... the fingers fly...I promise, there’s nothing I can’t learn or really flame it up....Thanks, Riv ????
