Auto-Biography (Year 2003)
As child I always wanted to be a musician (unfortunately I wanted to be a drummer, Jesus, I’m glad I snapped out of that phase). Around the age of twelve I began discovering bands like Led Zeppelin, The Cult and Guns and Roses. The sound of Jimmy Page, Billy Duffy and Slash’s guitars overwhelmed me. At fourteen I received my first guitar from my brother Paul. I joined my first band at fifteen despite my lack of knowledge of the axe I was desperately trying to wield. After parting ways with my first band I was suddenly left alone and quickly realized that I would need to progress rapidly if I were to go anywhere in life. Years later, everything has changed. I have discovered myself as a guitarist and equally important, I have discovered my musical brethren. All I want to do is share this euphoric Apocalypse that we call music with everyone around us.
