Band/artist history
From the age of Fifteen, I've learn the guitar (Electric) with a friend, I remember practicing Chet Atkins, The Ventures, That was in the early '60. Now, I have my Studio, so it is very easy to work on my compos, night or day, I put my headphones, plug my guitar , Start the beat that I have in mind, After, play some bass on the Keyboard, then back to the drumâ Back to the Guitarâ.and the Sing. The most difficult for me is the lyrics, I am French speaking, a little English.. The Blues and Rock sounds better in English, so I work hard to compose in English..
Have you performed in front of an audience?
I don't play very much in public anymore, it is very difficult in Montreal even in the Province to perform since the governement passed some laws that did very bad to business in Bars where we used to play, So, I'll tell you, I play sometimes in Restaurants, you know dinner and danceâ Cover songs, to survive..I work alone with a computer.
Your musical influences
My first influence came from The Beatles, that is when I really went full time in Music, She loves you Yea Yea Yeaâ The Jimi Hendrix, It was very difficult for us (the Band then) to play Hendrix, He was so hot on the guitar, very much in advance for it's time,plus the people where we play would'nt appreciate much this kind of music, it was very underground, ' psychedelick'. And my first band, we played very commercial music for marriage,ectâ
