Place of Birth: Columbus, Ohio.
I was cursed from birth with an overwhelming attraction to the guitar. At 4 I recieved my first guitar, but didn't play seriously until about 9. I am self taught, thus proving Socrates theory, picking up any knowledge that I could get my hands on.
I was in my share of local bands in my teens and twenties, playing a variety of the popular Heavy Rock and guitar oriented music of the '80s. My early infuences and teachers were: Randy Rhoads, George Lynch, Yngwie J. Malmsteen, Michael Schenker and Akira Takasaki, with much infuence from the great composers.
I began singing at twenty, singing back-up vocals in the bands I was in eventually taking over lead vocals.
Now that Rick, Justin and I have gotten it right we're hoping to conquer all we see.
