Favorite Song to Perform:
Everybody Wants To Rule the World

Your Favorite Band(s):
Currently Snarky Puppy, Tears For Fears, Steely Dan

Who are you currently listening too:
Wayne Krantz and Mark Lettieri

Who is you favorite guitarist:
So many to choose from and it changes over time but I consistently come back to Jeff Beck for sheer creativity and a unique vibe.

Who is your biggest musical influence:
Jimi Hendrix, especially his blues stuff. I haven't spent a lot of time copying his licks or songs but there's a certain purity and organic vibe to his music that I think is always in the background of what I play.

What is your dream gig:
Any gig where I'm playing with friends and the crowd is digging it.

What equipment do you use prefer:
I've been using various modeling equipment for years and I've settled on Fractal Audio Axe FX for the sheer flexibility it gives me as well as it's world class effects. Still own several vintage tube amps and they do what they are fantastic but my Stratocaster into my Axe FX through my AccuGroove cabs gives me a wide range of stellar sounds.

Favorite Song to Perform:
Money - Pink Floyd

Your Favorite Band(s):
Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, Rush

Who are you currently listening too:
Aisles, Steven Wilson

Who is you favorite guitarist:
Geddy Lee without a doubt; who else can play keyboards, bass and sing all at the same time?

Who is your biggest musical influence:
eeing my Dad play is what inspired me to pick up the guitar. Seeing David Gilmour play is what inspired me to keep going. No one puts more emotion into a guitar solo than David Gilmour.

What is your dream gig:
I think it would be fun to be the opening act for a famous touring band.

What equipment do you use prefer:
Ibanez bass guitar through a Fractal Audio AX8 and a set of AccuGroove speaker cabs.



Favorite Song to Perform:
Carry On Wayward Son

Your Favorite Band(s):
Led Zeppelin, Rush, Kansas

Who are you currently listening too:
Lately I've really enjoyed listening to my old vinyl LP's. From Physical Graffiti to some of the 80's rap that I played in my DJ years long, long ago.

Who is you favorite drummer:
Too many to choose from. I think for me, I am in awe of the highly skilled, technical drummers like Neil Peart, Mike Portnoy, Mike Mangini, Gavin Harrison, and Marco Minnemann. Those guys have skills I will never obtain. Like I always say: John Bonham got me into drumming... Jeff Porcaro got me into construction.

Who is your biggest musical influence:
John Bonham

What is your dream gig:
To be honest, the idea of a "dream gig" has long left me. I love making music and I love doing that with my friends. The "dream" for me is to have a great show with tons of family and friends enjoying the music.

What equipment do you use prefer:
I play DW Drums and Zildjian cymbals.
