I started out playing guitar back in 1980 at the ripe old age of 13. I'm self taught and learned to play by ear.
By the time I hit 17, I was occasionally gigging locally, and at the age of 20, I was touring Canada full time with an Iron Maiden tribute band, then moved on to other bands as years came and went.
At age 28, touring took a back seat to raising a family, paying bills, but playing music never did. That passion will never die.
I always try to keep my chops up to snuff.
Influences, too many to list. I took bits and pieces from John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, Hendrix, John Deacan, John Entwistle, to name a few.
