Personal Quote:

Miles (Miles Davis) influenced my musical development in ways I couldn't even begin to explain. Can you imagine a young painter studying with Picasso (Pablo Picasso)? But he got flak for me being in his band. His response was, "Well, find me a nigger who plays like John and I'll hire him."


Jeff Beck has called him "the best guitarist alive". (Uncut magazine - March 2010). See more »
