Bio:
I'm 31 and have been playing guitar since I was 9. I really wanted to play the drums, but my mom wanted me to play church songs and Christmas songs, so I took guitar lessons. Didn't really like it at first. Then, in junior high, I discovered The Ramones and The Sex Pistols, so me and a neighbor kid, who played the snare drum in the school band, formed a punk band entirely for the purpose of making songs that made fun of our teachers. That band evolved nicely through high school, until everyone left to go to college. I then found a few new people to play with my sophomore year and end up supporting myself as a Stevie Ray wannabe/bartender during weekend nights my senior year. Upon graduation, I put my gear in the closet and did not play a chord for a few years until I felt the urge to play again. I happened upon an alt.country band looking for a lead guitarist and soon landed a minor record deal... until the drummer joined the special forces and the bass player moved away. Then played around in a few other local groups until landing a spot in my current band, which is made up of "former almost-pro musicians" who have great local connections. That's where I am today... along with a new interest in home recording. I love guitar-based rock and cite the Beatles, Television, Willie Nelson, the Ramones, Radiohead, Neil Young, Elvis Costello, Wilco and, of course, the Who as my biggest influences.
