Okay, so I started out wanting to be a garbage man but then the Beatles came along and changed everything.

I was into music as far back as I can remember. Even before the Beatles the twangy telecaster sounds on Johnny Cash’s “I Walk The Line” and “Ring Of Fire” caught my ear as early as 3 or 4 years old. By age 8 my older brother had started showing me some things on the guitar and I learned to play a few Bob Dylan songs. By the time I got out of high school I was playing music full time. I played in a variety of cover bands over the next few years. Some of the bands that influenced my style from that time period were Aerosmith, ZZ Top, Foghat, The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Robin Trower and of course The Rolling Stones.
