I started lessons for playing drums at age of 8. A year later, I switched to guitar. At 14, I played in a wedding band with my Dad & brother. After 7 years playing with them I switch to a 60′s band that lasted 10 years. I also played in a Top 40 band in the late 90′s till present I got involved with Beatles tribute bands in 1995, performing as the “George Harrison” with them and got a chance to travel and performed at the famous Cavern Club in Liverpool.
I started playing guitar when I was in 3rd grade. When I was in 4th grade I gave guitar lessons to my school teacher. I wasn’t very good but that’s ok, he wasn’t either. My earliest recollection of music was the church choir that consisted of guitar players and drums (which was pretty rare back then). Even the Priest played guitar with the choir. In 9th grade I met my best friend who played guitar as well. We would sit and listen to Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blue Oyster Cult and Neil Young.
