I didn’t want to be a big rock star, I wanted to be known for was a good guitar player and musician. That’s what it’s about for me. I have a new record out called “The Art of Malice”, it’s my fifth record. I think doing five records is an accomplishment, I do them because I love the guitar and love the music. I’m very excited that people enjoy my music.
