Favorite guitarists :
I gotta say I love Dave Mustane's guitar skills. Of course Kirk Hammet, Dime Bag Darryl, and many more. I obsess over the sound, not the person so I have many more favorites but not names.
Favorite bassists :
Les Claypool is a freak of nature.
Favorite books :
Anything that keeps my interest, including manuals to my studio equipment...
Favorite tv :
F*** TV -- if you want to torture me, make me watch commercials.
I love playing string instruments and composing structured songs. Back in 2002, I worked at Sam Ash (A.K.A. Sam's Ass) and through a program that KORG set up, I was able to gain most of my studio equipment for FREE! I just sold a bizillion D1600's and D12's they gave me one of each for free!! Thanks KORG! I put together 2 albums worth of full-band songs all written,played,recorded,mastered and produced myself. I would like to get a project band together to play some or all these songs live, but finding the right people can be difficult. That said anything worth doing is never easy.
