I'm a music lover due to the fact that I myself am in a band called AMETHYST which is a Groove/Death band simular to the style of SEPULTURA and others in that field of music. I grew up a big fan of KISS back in the make-up days. So alot of my main guitar influence comes from Ace Frehley. I'm into guitar instrumental music. Being a guitarist myself makes me a big fan of people like Randy Rhoads, Yngwie Malmsteen, Marty Freidman, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jennifer Batten and any guitarist that can play well. The one band from the 80's that had a real big impact on me though was STRYPER. Does anybody remember them? I do appreciate all styles of music. I think of Michael Jackson as an excellent singer, songwritter, dancer, music entertainer. I'm a huge fan of Black Gospel. I love The Winans, BeBe and CeCe Winans, Andre Crouch, Take 6, Aretha Franklin and whomever else is black and sings the gospel. It's a great music. Especially when it's annointed by the Holy Ghost! My wife and I are going to begin promoting Christian Concerts in Spokane Washington starting in 2001 sometime. We were doing it in Dallas/FortWorth Texas for a couple of years and opened many doors there.
