Why this name?
First and Middle
Do you play live?
No. Love to someday, but for now its all in my home.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It opens up alot of exposure to so many different bands, ideas, and musical styles.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
No. I would be more interested in an independent or small label because of the ability to work with them easier in controlling what I do.
Band History:
I have played in a couple different jam bands in the past. Mostly, just playin' around and seeing what we came up with. In those bands, I played drums exclusively. I do miss those days alot. It was very free-form and exciting. Plus, it was something to do while you got snockered up.
Your influences?
Most of my musical influences come from the 70's and 80's rock, metal, and pop scene. I know it doesnt sound like it sometimes with my choice of musical direction. There are snippets of influence by Pink Floyd, The Cure, The Beatles, Radiohead, Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest, Rush, The Scorpions, Slayer, The Eagles, Rush, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Porcupine Tree, and Triumph to just name a few.
Favorite spot?
My very most favorite spot would be sitting on the couch at 6am drinking a cup o' coffee enjoying the quiet. Essentially, feeling like the only one alive. it's very empowering, well, until someone wakes up and the dream is gone.
