Bio

Born in Cape Town, Durban resident. Seen some of the world, made some good friends...hoping to make a few more

How long have you been playing?
I was 17 when I first tried. Santana's 2nd album's "Hope you feelin better" seduced me into trying to learn to play.

What was the first concert you ever went to?
1984, Durban City Hall. Music mad friends dragged me there. I saw Steve Fataar of the Flames and a very capable Van Halen style guitarist named Cooper

What gear do you use?
Squier Affinity Strat guitar, 100 W Marshall MG 102CFX amp, Zoom G3X multi-effect expression pedal.

Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Everyone I heard...

Are you in a band?
Just joined WayFarer as lead guitarist. Working on our album, 1st track can be heard at http://wayfarer5.reverbnation.com/#music

What kind of music do WayFarer play?
Rock.

How'd WayFarer meet?
Midnight at the crossroads? LOL! Not really, but an amazing set of coincidences

If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
Current - Carlos Santana, Ritchie Blackmore - to say thanks for the music
Historical - Jimi Hendrix, Ludwig Von - to say thanks for the music

You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
Electric LadyLand - first heard it in the early eighties and hated it, lol. But it is a comprehensive display of poetry, technique,style and musical elegance by Mr Hendrix

Motto
Just an old dog on a hard road....
