Ive been playing since my mid to late teens and i started playing basicly because everyone else in my family did but early on i heard the likes of Al Di Meola,Allan Holdsworth and John Mclaughlin and was hooked instantly, so thats what i like and it really inspires me to create my own music with the band iam a member of NMV3

First concert was in 1988 and it was at Maine Rd,Manchester Cities old football ground and the band was Pink Floyd,what a concert to start with wow

I have many guitars but i feel the only one worth mentioning is my 1980 Hondo 2 Pro,i bought it in 1988 from the old Curly Music shop next to Hessy's for 69 haha.Its had a few mods since then and is still my main guitar even though ive bought 10 plus guitars trying to replace it but i always go back to my baby

This will change on a weekly/monthly basis but at the moment it would be Nomad by Tribal Tech,its just amazing,absolute brilliance from a bunch of virtuoso musicians from america never fails to give me goose bumps whenever i hear it,but as i say this will change week to week.It has changed and i am yet again totally addicted to Dr Hee,Tribal Tech never cease to amaze me
