Birthdate:  13th August

Gear:  Gibson Les Pauls, Ibanez 7-string, Marshall amp and more stomp boxes than I have feet with which to stomp them

Best Qualities:  Knows when to say something (though often doesn't) and when to shut up

Everything else sucks [joke]. I pretty much like any style of music that conveys passion though I do have a particular soft spot for the combination of rock band and orchestra
