Five things to know about me
My dream instrument:
I might want a Gibson Les Paul one day, but I would not trade my Marshall DSL 100h tube head for anything else!
Song that has influenced me the most:
“Sweet Child O’ Mine” Guns and Roses. The minute I heard Slash’s guitar riff on the song I was hooked!
My dream venue to play at:
Madison Square Garden, go big or go home!
The rock and roll artist I’d love to meet the most:
Jimi Hendrix, his career was cut short and left so many questions. He was totally moving as a performer and changed the standards of rock and took part in Woodstock.
First song you learned to play:
“Into the Great Wide Open” by Tom Petty.
