I've had so many influences over the years, but there's a few that deserve special mention!

Below is a list of people and bands that have made a huge impact on my life and my musical style over the years. Again, these are just a few of probably a hundred or more musicians that I have so much respect for and I wish I could put them all on here...but that would take me months to list them all.

I'm one of those people who will never say a band 'sucks' or is 'lame'. Of course there's styles of music I could do without, but I have complete repect for everyone who does what they love doing and just because it doesn't appeal to my musical tastes, kudos for everyone who tries!

As for people who say a musician can't play or 'suck' or whatever negative thoughts come out of a person's mouth...think about hobbies you have that doesn't appeal to someone else's taste. If you enjoy it, that's what matters! It would probably hurt having someone tell you that you suck at what you do wouldn't it? People do things they enjoy to their ability level and if a guitarist/musician can't play something as well as I do, they are just as good if not better than I am at it because they love doing it and it makes them happy. Compliment them on what they do because it encourages them to do what they love!
