I've been playing music since the age of 14 and have performed with various bands over the years. Have never toured, had the chance...didn't take it, ..... still no regrets. Opened for .38 Special in 1992 and have played at Sloppy Joes in Key West with Emily's Toybox. ETB is part of my extended family. I use/have used PRS, Gibson, Fender, Spector, and Ovation guitars. Amps from Fender, Peavey, and Carvin. Effects .....Ernie Ball volume pedal, a vintage ATR T2 w/X-15 midi, DigiTech RP 500, Morley Bad Horsie 2, vintage Fender Blender, vintage Fender Fuzz-Wah, .......stuff that I still cant throw away,get rid of, or part with......to this day!!!
