Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
metallica, megadeth, pantera, alice in chains, pearl jam..just a few but i have such a long list i could go on forever..these particular bands i find i lean more toward when writing/playing
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
i am currently starting a new band but just spent the last 2 years in a band called 3Rd Zero, we were acoustic for metal heads, and the band were friends for years. we have played 30+ shows over a 2 year period.
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
zakk wylde for sure..and many others but zakk wylde is just awesome and would be wicked to jam with..
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
biggest was maybe 230 people which was capacity but 400 came through the doors over the course of the show. The best damn rock show-and the Boxing day jam, 2011 in amherst at teazers, smallest was probably a benefit we played this year..most memorable event , playing with the motorleague, the fed pennies, and shades of sorrow.
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
very hard question..very hard...but since i would be marooned, and probably angry about it.. would have to go with a pantera or megadeth album..any would do..:)
