CDBaby: “A mystical guitar man from a bygone era…arrived to L.A in the early 90’s committed to alter the musical scene. Club goers and musicians begin to talk about the new kid with the virtuoso aggressive guitar style, raspy vocals, and his high energy fueled Blues-Rock tunes …takes his guitar pyrotechnics to a different level of instrumental majesty. Performing on a custom made Strat carefully modified to his specifications… acclaimed six string technique on both originals and a Deep Purple cover.. . influences include Hendrix, Blackmore, Satriani, J. Winter, Gary Moore, Albert King, and other guitar monsters.” Upbeat: 1, 4(instr.), 10(instr.). Mid: 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12(Deep Purple cover). Slow: 5(10-min.).
