I started out late...36 to be exact. I wanted an outlet during some big changes and bought a guitar...the rest is history.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
1986....Bryan Adams....Reckless Tour....Hammersmith Odeon (as it was called then)...with a buddy of mine from school called Mike.
What gear do you use?
Hohner Countryman dreadnought acoustic (first guitar and it's blue).....JHS Encore (Fender Strat replica).....Wesley Freeport (Fender Tele hollow body replica - also blue!)....Lindo Black Fire electro-acoustic (my favourite guitar and my main workhorse also).
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Bon Jovi....I grew up with them and they defined an era for me. Jon and Richie are still my favourite songwriters and their music is always current. They were the band to listen to at school and they have been my biggest influence and inspiration.
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
It would have to be Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora....those guys have inspired me so much over the last few years. Another guy I would love to play one of those dark smoky bars with is a superb singer/songwriter called Jack Savoretti and combined with Jason Mraz, we could have a great time!
