My old man was a musician - that's what he did for a living. And like most fathers, occasionally he'd let me visit where he worked. So I started going to his recording studio, and I really dug it.
A lot of bands whine about the road and how tough it is.
I was lucky enough to get to see guys like Bugs Henderson, Jimmy Wallace, all those great Texas blues players.
The harder stuff has always done it for me. Man, if it rips, I'll give it a thumbs up!
I love 'Dogman' by King's X and Living Colour's 'Stain.'
Spittin' blood, smokin' guitars, fire everywhere - Kiss is where I started.
