“I didn’t know if I wanted to play music at a young age but I did want to be involved in some type (music). I remember listening to the oldies radio stations and hearing bands and wondering who are these bands and where did they come from and why are they doing this? That got me very intrigued. In middle school I ended up learning how to play guitar. My dad did not let me play his guitar, and that gave me extra incentive to take his guitar, steal it, and learn how to play it. One day he came home and saw me playing it and realized I knew how to play guitar and he bought me a guitar. That was when I was 11 and ever since I’ve been playing in bands.”
