March Madness Day 9

For the second to last day of my own March Madness, it's gotta be Malcolm Young of AC/DC. While Angus is no doubt amazing, I always wanted to be more Malcolm, a super-tight rhythm player, writing killer tunes and riffs with that full, low-gain sound. So many to choose from but here's "You Shook Me All Night Long." - http://youtu.be/Lo2qQmj0_h4

March Madness Day 8

Going bluesy for today's March Madness post. Albert King, "Born Under A Bad Sign" with his guitar of choice - the Flying V - a man after my own heart! A king of blues indeed... http://youtu.be/BKY8KIt9kqc

March Madness Day 7

Up next for my March Madness rundown of my most influential guitarists is David Gilmour. He gets such a unique tone out of his Strat. Here he is with "There's No Way Out Of Here" from his first solo record. - http://youtu.be/dUBil43DAoo

March Madness Day 6

Growing up watching Joan Jett play her Les Paul with all the fervor, might and irreverence of punk rock definitely made me think that I could do it too.... Not to mention her revolutionary vocal approach and all around badassness, she defies the reviled "good for a girl" saying. Here's a classic live video of "Bad Reputation" for March Madness today. - http://youtu.be/_S7MlEBKB0k

March Madness Day 5

March Madness continues on with Keith Richards, because it doesn't get cooler than Keith...'nuff said! - http://youtu.be/3vtILjo26ew

March Madness Day 4

Next up for my March Madness list of my personal guitar influences is Pete Townshend of The Who! For the killer anthemic tunes, raw expression and of course the windmill! Check him out doing his thing live in this version of "Pinball Wizard!" - http://youtu.be/d4TF9YBi5ck

March Madness Day 3

For today's March Madness most influential guitarist I've got to go with Randy Rhoads, for all he did for Metal, with a Les Paul and a Marshall, "Crazy Train" is about as iconic as it gets! - http://youtu.be/fcsFHdoT6bs

March Madness Day 2

Next up on my March Madness list of my personal most influential guitarists is Eddie Van Halen! Fair Warning is my favorite Van Halen album and I thought "Hear About It Later" would be a great example of that signature Eddie guitar sound. Enjoy! http://youtu.be/1b7mRIdAD48

March Madness

Hope everyone is off to a good start with their brackets. In honor of the tournament, I decided to have a little March Madness of my own! For the rest of the month, in no particular order I'll be sharing with you all the 10 guitarists who've had the biggest influence on my career and playing style. Starting things off with Mr. Page, who hands down, always tops my list of influential guitarists, not just for his dirty blues riffs, swagger, or vision and imagination (which I LOVE), but also for bringing something a bit more beautiful and delicate to rock n roll, like the tune "Going to California" .... http://youtu.be/BAQeZNjmJDA

Watch "Cry For A Minute" Now!

Excited to present to you all the lyric video for my track "Cry For A Minute." The song comes from THE DECADE OF QUEEN V and the video is a photo retrospective of that whole era.
