I was 17 and had no prior singing or stage experience. I was asked to sing in a Talent Show as a replacement for another vocalist that bailed on a band ('92 I believe). That one performance lit a fire in me and I've been doing it ever since.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
The 1st "MEMORABLE" concert I went to was in 1991 and was a Bill Graham Present's: Day On The Green @ The Oakland Coliseum. This was the 1st concert I went to with my friends. No parents! The bands were Soundgarden, Faith No More, Queensryche, & Metallica! It was an awesome show from start to finish!!
What gear do you use?
I use Shure Microphones and my live rig consists of Sennheiser & Nady Wireless Systems. My in-ear monitors are Ultimate Ears.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
I have had a lot of vocal influences over the years but if we are talking about my earliest influences when i was first starting out I would say: Sebastian Bach, Robert Plant, Layne Staley, & Chuck Billy
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
I made a name for myself as the lead singer of Imagika. I sang on the bands final 4 albums. I currently sing for 4 Metal bands: SKINNER (Power\Thrash), Machine.Called.Man (Progressive\Melodic Death), Tramontane (Power), & The Consequence of Chaos (Progressive).
