Ok, I'm 58 years old and am an old metal head. Not currently playing in a band but have played In bands most of my life. I've toured many times and was lucky enough to open for some national acts such as Y&T, Foghat, Pat Travers, Robin Trower, The Tubes, Ronnie Montrose, Michael Schenker to name a few. Never was signed but had some small success. I play mostly for fun now. Had at one point four full Marshall stacks but they took up way too much room and I had some financial probs so they all went eventually. Wasn't touring and didn't have roadies anymore plus that stuff is heavy. I am now playing a much smaller set up . The poor man's Soldano meaning Jet City. A jca 50h and 100hdm heads and two jca 24s+ cabs. I play mostly Ibanez guitars but have an epi Paul and a Dean Schenker custom flames V. I am an old school shredder meaning before sweeping was popular. My style is a cross between Schenker and schon in style but I'm really digging the newer metal bands. Anyway, that's me in a nutshell. My grandkids think I'm cool though cause their grandpa has lots of tats lol!
