Started piano lessons at 5. HATED them....but now I'm so glad I hung in there. Dad played the guitar so I just kind of followed his footsteps.Too many influences to list and explain them all.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
I think it was Journey at the Horizon in Chicago. What was memorable???....I'd rather not say. Let's just stick with - I was young and dumb.
What gear do you use?
Fender Strat's...Les Paul, Martin D28, Breedlove, Ibanez, Jackson, Kurzweil, Presonus, Mac - Logic, ART MPA, WAVE Bundle, Toon Track
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Probably Styx. I grew up in the same town as some of the band members....LaGrange, so many of us kind of idolized them. In fact I had the opportunity to take lessons from one of the original guitarist for about a year....Here's to you J.C (John Curulewski)
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
David Gilmour. IMHO the consumate musician. I try and emulate his sound and style...but always fall short.
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
YouTube....Haaaaa. Which by the way....I hate their new channel design.
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
