Love all styles, jazz, hard rock, acid rock, jazz fusion, Latin, contemporary, even country.
Started in La, lessons from Jim Gastinau starting at 7. played for the "Cascades" and studio at CBS. I was very fortunate. He left to Viet Nam and I was 12. I started teaching myself and had been in my own band since 7 years. My dad actually bought me a set. Very fortunate again. Played early jouney, humble pie, blue oyster cult, james gang, John Mcglaughlin. Chick Corea, Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Miles, ELP, King Crimson you name it we played it. even frank sinatra when requested. We always had fun.
