I've been playing bass guitar since 1991. I started playing music in the 6th grade and haven't stopped.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
My first concert to make an impression on me was in 1989. I saw Metallica at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, CA. "One" was the big encore. It was pitch black for many minutes and then people started hitting the seat in front of them. When what seemed to be everyone banging on the seat, the sound was very similar to a helicopter. Then James played the opening riff and the place erupted.
What gear do you use?
Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray, 5 string.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Metallica, Guns 'N Roses. 'Nuff said.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
Currently I play with "Last Call", a cover band. We play local bar scenes.
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
Even tho he's a bass player too, but I would love to jam and learn from Dave Meros from Spock's Beard. That guy knows a lot. But if I would have to be the only bass player, I would want to play with Slash.
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
I've performed in front of 2000+. It was the Gift of Love Concert(s) in Alameda CA.
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
This question sucks. LOL. The only album that sticks out to me for this is Dream Theater's "Metropolis Pt. 2, Scenes from a Memory" because this is a concept album and can be played from start to finish in it's entirety and tell a story. The musicianship on this DT album in particular is superb. This was Jordan Rudess' first album with DT and it was apparent that his influence transcended the band
