ABOUT

I have played guitar and other instruments my entire life. I started playing guitar at age 7 and have played... Let's just say over 30 years as I do not want to give away my age ;) I studied music all throughout school and although I do play by ear but I do understand the theory behind music (It's all mathematics) which gives me the unique opportunity when figuring out a song that I always get it spot on as I understand progressions, scales and why it should be the way that it is.

I am primarily a guitarist Lead/Rhythm and I sing Lead Vocals and Backup but I can play Bass if needed.

Influences

My influences vary greatly! From the 60's, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors and on and on to the 70's, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Santana (60/70's) Pink Floyd, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Styx and... I could continue writing influences down forever! in the 80's I'd say Def Leppard was one of my largest but I liked bands like Huey Lewis and the News, U2 and again, On and on and then Came Sound Garden, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam and whew! So may to list! Aerosmith is also an all time fave!

As far as my Guitar playing goes I'd have to say I was mostly influenced by Jimmy Page and Ritchie Blackmore.
