Gear List: For the recording of Take One, I used all
of the following at one point or another:
'97 Hamer Daytona (a.k.a. "The Strat that's better than most real Strats"); '92 Hamer FM Special (a.k.a. "Flat Top");
'98 Hamer 12-String Eclipse (a.k.a. "The 12-String"); Ramirez R2 Classical; Dr. Z Prescription Head; Marshall 4x12 cab
(owned by the studio); Line 6 Flextone amp; Fulltone Fulldrive II; Ibanez TS-9; Prescription Electronics Experience pedal;
Vox wah; Boss Octave and CE2 Chorus pedals; ADA re-issue Flanger; Chandler Digital ECHO...Echo...echo...
Live I use all of the above except with a Marshall 4x10 cab that's a lot easier to tote around than a 4x12
Favorite ice cream: During the McCarthy years, I was
under suspicion as a communist because I said I didn't like ice cream, but nowadays I say "Give me chocolate
or give me death"

If I could be any cartoon character, I would definitely be:

What has been getting regular rotation in my CD player lately:
Iguanas, Moby - Play, Stokowski orchestral arrangements of Bach instrumental pieces, RHCP - Californication, SRV, Del Amitri
Desert Island Album: Are You Experienced?
Impossible to pick one, but I love Wishbone, and you can't go wrong with a sack of White Castles
The single biggest influence that shaped my guitar playing:
Almost everything I know about playing guitar I learned jamming Rush tunes in my friend Scott Karch's basement
