Personal Quote:

My problem is I don't like traveling to play. I love traveling for holiday, and I love playing music if I'm able to go home every night, but I don't like combining the two. You never get to stay in one place long enough to get immersed in the culture.

Trivia:

The Farriss Brothers formed in 1977 and 20 years later remained unchanged in their line-up as INXS - a definite rarity in the music industry. See more »

Nickname:

The Mozart of Funk
