After picking up my first guitar at age 5, my destiny was clear ... or so I thought ... I was going to be a rock star. I spent the majority of my early years learning from the music my parents listened to, which was mostly the popular music of the '70s, The Beatles, my Dad's oldies, Country and Folk music. It wasn’t until I snuck out to my first concert (Van Halen opening for Black Sabbath in 1980) that I was made privy to a guitar’s real capabilities. That one event re-defined my musical interests forever.
Since then, I’ve been both a working and recreational musician. Of the seven instruments I play, guitar is still my main love, but the dream of being a rock star is on the back burner. Instead, I’m making a difference in music as a writer and indie music promoter of sorts.
In 2002 I co-founded www.garageradio, a site dedicated to the indie community, which has seen great success over the past couple of years. I also host a radio show called “The Road Rash Bash,” a Rock and Metal extravaganza featuring indie bands and name bands that are on indie labels, but not getting the exposure they deserve. I work with the industry on every level these days and that experience has given me the insight and contacts I need to bring informative commentaries to the people who need them most ... the DIY and independent community.
