I wasn't supported by any person, even my father was my bigest obstacle, for that reason I began to play later, since 1995 (21 years old), and I've had to stop for a long times. I became a musician but I wanted to be the first Metal guitarris in my little hometown: Libano. So the first months I started playing METALLICA songs, then I left behind the covers to play my own riffs.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
The first concert that I went, it was a band called PRODUCTO METALIZADO from Manizales City. They went to Libano in 1991. I remember the full energy and the loud volume.
