I was 6 years old and had an immediate liking for the loud sounds of my fathers Sansui Quadraphonic stereo system. didnt get serious about guitar till mid teens, before that, it was just something around that family did at bbq events. Once I developed a psychological and emotional connection with the guitar, the rest of my life had little meaning . . .
What was the first concert you ever went to?
The Tubes, they rocked it at the mid state fair in california long ago . . . was with friends, but they really had no interest and went their own way, but i stayed and watched the then old band play a free show like they were playing for a million viewer audience . . . dedication and passion . . .
What gear do you use?
Dean V wing acoustic/electric, Ibanez PGM 30, a hand made, self made 7 string, got rid of a few . . lol
