Equipment Abused:
I exclusively play B.C. Rich and Charvel/Jackson guitars, Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier Heads, Peavy 5150 cabinets, D'Addario XL .010-.052 strings, Dunlop tortex picks ( know-the blue ones!), and of course Floyd Rose Tremolo systems.
Experience in the industry:
I've been in many cover and metal bands, and I've participated with as many as eight members at a time. Some of my past gigs include:
The Boardwalk, The Press Club, Big Shots, and Cheerleaders (when they were around).
I've also played at the Colonial Theatre and have had many party gigs (garages, backyards etc.)
My old projects include bands like:
Life Kills, Moribund Saint, Melodic Fusion, Wood Pile and Water.
Influences (musical not chemical-those are too numerous to list):
"As far as influences are concerned, there are so many I don't know where to start. I guess we all know that Slayer has always had an impact on me. I think we have to give credit to the original Metal Heads...Wolfgang Amedeus Mozart, Johann, Sebastian Bach, Ludwig Van Beethoven, but most recently bands such as the Beatles and the Edgar Winters Band have been added to my collections. But most listened to throughout my life have been Morbid Angel and Deicide. I also have much appreciation for guys like Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai, Kirk Hammett, Dave Mustaine, Bill Steer, Tony Iommi and on and on..."
I ain't into nuthin' fancy. I ain't about no gimmicks or schemes. I'm all about doin' what I do...and this is how I do it!
