Started @ 16 - 17 years old. Was inspired by the amazing guitar riffage heard in Metallica's "Disposable Heroes."
What was the first concert you ever went to?
Can't remember the year, my mom took me with her to see B. J. Thomas. Amy Grant was the opener. She got boo'ed off the stage...
What gear do you use?
Lower end Ibanez 6-string electric, Hondo Les Paul copy and my pride and joy, a first-year Schecter Hellraiser 7-string.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Probably early Metallica. I couldn't believe when I first heard them that it was a person playing an actual guitar. It blew my mind!
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
SIXandTWENTY (www.sixandtwentyband.com). Heavy, groove-oriented, progressive with no pretentiousness. We had played in different bands around the area.We play lots of shows....
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
David Gilmour (need I really say WHY?!?!?), Page Hamilton (my favorite band is Helmet), Trent Reznor (to see how he would morph my sound), Klayton of Celldweller (same reason as Trent!)... Really I would love to jam with ANYONE in my music collection!
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
400+ at Freedom Weekend Aloft In Anderson, SC; 15 or 20 @ someplace I can't remember what the name is..... lol
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
Pink Floyd's "Dark Side Of The Moon." Can't remember when I first heard it. It has EVERYTHING. Dark. Light. Heavy. Soft. The production is INCREDIBLE. The tones are AMAZING. It really transports you to another place...
