almost all influences came because of sabbath, my brother had one GH cassete and I really liked it, however I became a fan because one day I rent ¨Rock and roll racing¨ and that was it, soundtrack was Paranoid, Highway Star among others :)

Stevie salas was a dif story, I bought his washburn sig guitar and didnt even knew it was a sig guitar, so when i got back home I saw the headstock and read Stivie Salas Guitar... I google'd hid name and got hooked

Paul Gilbert: when I was JUST staring playing the electric guitar I bought a tape video which I forgot he title but it had a sample of "Intense Rock I" those long ass fingers shredding that pink Ibanez really marked my life! :D

Yngwie: I listened to a short section of "Far Beyond the Sun" on Windows Media Player's "Media Guide" where I also discovered Steve Vai.

Richie Kotzen and George Lynch: They were in the same video I discovered Paul.

My worst day on stage is better than my best day at work. My best day on stage is better than sex.

Paul Gilbert - I stumbled across his Technical Difficulties video on youtube. I think I watched it about 10 times in a row, and I couldn't believe he was playing so fast and accurately with little effort. Instantly blew any metal guitarist that I liked away, and made me a bit depressed because I realized how much I sucked compared to him.

Yngwie - Again, Youtube. I saw a video of this dude who looked like he was trapped in the 80's, and so I clicked on it and it was him performing Far Beyond the Sun.

Stevie Ray Vaughan - My dad is a HUGE SRV fan, and when I started playing guitar he made me listen to him. I've never learned one of his songs but one of these days I'll get around to it. Amazing player.
