I started playing guitar in the 60s not long after seeing the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show. Played my first professional gigs in the early 70s while attending Millersville University.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
Chicago at the Farm Show Arena in Harrisburg, PA.
What gear do you use?
I have a lot of guitars mostly Fender. Lately I've been playing my Eric Clapton Blackie Strat and a Les Paul Classic. For acoustic guitars I play Martins, Collings and Gibson A5 mandolins and Beard Dobro.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
In the 80s I played in an original music band called The Fender Twinns then The Gliders in the late 90s. Lots of cover bands in between. I've played lots of local theater pit band gigs and in the 21st century I've been playing dobro and mandolin backing up singer songwriter Robert Bobby.
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
Danny Gatton, cause he was an amazing guitar player.
