I've been playing over 40 years now, so now you have an idea how old I am. It's been awesome to see how many of the artists I grew up listening to are now making the best music of their lives. That's what I'm trying to do, make the most of this life and do the best I can with the time I have. My influences are many and varied. I started out playing acoustic guitar learning the songs of Cat Stevens, Crosby Stilles Nash & Young among others. David Gilmour, Jeff Beck, Carlos Santana, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Eric Clapton are among my favorites. Early on I tried to emulate Carlos, and later I took on the Gilmour style. Music is the universal language. Love is the key. Sounds are all around us. Some come from heaven, some from earth, and some from man. Faith is what's needed, love is the answer. I often wonder when the wars will stop and people will just get along. Maybe the world would not be so tough. Call me a dreamer, but let's at least try and make the world a better place.
