Well, I tend to work on many things at once. I'm writing and working on some music for myself, some for XYZ. Of course XYZ will be touring starting February 22nd with The Monsters of Rock Cruise. And I will be continuing to do shows for both XYZ, and with Terry Ilous and the Vagabonds. I may also do some solo work in the future; schedule permitting.

What got you involved in the music industry?

I would always listen to my father play guitar, and he instilled a great love for a variety of music in me when I was very young. Eventually I began listening to artists such as Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Deep Purple, and more. Those artists inspired me more towards hard rock, and I eventually met up with Pat Fontaine and joined XYZ.

How have you changed as a musician in the last few years?

As a musician, I would say that I play and write music more now for myself. In the past I may have gone along more with what the record company and fans may have wanted. But now I feel the need to do what I have a passion for.

If there is anything additional you would like to add, please include.

I'd just like to say, as always, thank you to all the fans and friends who have supported me for all these years. I receive positive messages daily from around the world, and that is one of the best parts of my job, which is being able to interact with the fans on a personal level. And make sure to track me on all my social media pages for updates and upcoming tour announcements.
