Started on bongo drums at age 8. Saw the Beatles on Ed Sullivan at age 12, knew that's what I wanted to do with my life!
What gear do you use?
Too many instruments to list! Currently, my Tele is my main axe.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
I continue to regard Lennon & McCartney as among the world's greatest songwriters. Also love Eric Clapton; not only a great musician himself, but was a "gateway" for me to the music of Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, BB King, etc. etc.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
Currently in 3 working bands, plus numerous one-off projects. Primarily blues-roots. And yes, I perform live shows all the time.
