Every kind of music from Country and blues, to Metal and Mariachi came over the airwaves and I soaked up most of it.
After moving to Austin and working at a rehearsal hall where local artists such as Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Johnson, Fabulous Thunderbirds,& Joe Ely honed their craft,I was able to wrap my fingers around Stevie Ray Vaughn's famous SRV guitar thus begining a magical, mystical experience of relocating to Los Angeles and to play with Tim Bogert.
After experiencing the inner workings of the music "biz" in Los Angeles, it became clear to me that I was not interested in flavor of the week music nor changing my music to fit radio's airplay format requirements.
I also observed that many "successful" artists were no happier than I, many of them less happy than I due to "buisness" deals gone bad and assorted breakdowns of communication between management and label etc...Therefore I remain perfectly happy to be a self-contained music generating entity with no creative limitations, and enjoy the fullness of making all sorts of guitar based musical experiments from science fiction to twisted country.
As a member of the guitarapalooza.com organization, we continue our monthly Guitarapalooza Concert series at various venues around Los Angeles, doing our best to promote guitar playing and unite the guitar community.
I now have 4 cd's available at my site www.guitarfreak.com and look forward to many more musical adventures.
