Influences

I'm often jamming along to artists such as Gary Moore, Clapton, JJ Cale, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Albert Collins, SRV, Johnny Lang, Buddy Guy, Fleetwood Mac (P.Green Era), Black Crowes, Jeff Healey, Zep, Hendrix, Stones, Faces, Walter Trout, BB King, John Hiatt, Johnny Winter, Blues Traveller, Bonamassa. The list goes on...

While my playing style and influences are predominately blues based, I listen to and play all sorts - Rock, Funk, Jazz, Country and more.

Not forgetting I love many of the 'bass greats' too - Jaco Pastorius, Victor Wooten, Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, Flea, Nathan East to name a few.
