ABOUT

I’ve been playing guitar since I was 13. My Dad gave me my first record which was Scorpions Tokyo Tapes. It quickly became my guitar textbook, therefore, I’m obviously heavily influenced by Uli Jon Roth and Rudolf Schenker. Not much later my Dad gave me UFO Strangers in the Night and Pink Floyd’s The wall.

I love 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and specially 80’s music Hard Rock and Metal.
I’m interested in joining a quality tribute band. I can play music from Judas Priest to Journey and anything in between. I’d also would not mind to do an original band with an 80’s throw back sound and image (Steel Panther, Crazy Lixx)
