Personal Quote:

In the '70s, rock became arena bands playing really slick, boring, gutless, soulless pop crap, and there were a lot of us trying to figure out a new sound and a way to bring back the essence of what rock and roll meant to us growing up in the '50s and '60s.


Father played guitar with famed guitarist Django Reinhardt.
