Q: What started you playing Blues? I think everyone wants to know.

A: It all started with my Mother taking me to see Ray Charles at Shane Park when I was 2 years old. I then heard the Thrill is Gone for the first time when I uncle came to pick me up in his red T-Top Camaro. I liked the way it sounded and I liked the way the guitar was playing with the orchestra. From then on I wanted to play the guitar and I wanted the blues to be my specialty.
