Jeff Beck is probably my favorite and biggest influence on the guitar. Touring with him in 2010 was such a milestone. I used to show up early every day just to hear his sound check, which sometimes lasted an hour.
I got married to an amazing woman, had 2 awesome kids and toured with Jeff Beck, I can die a happy man now.
Touring with Brian May was like a dream come true that happened early in my career. He inspired me with the way he harmonized and layered his guitar sounds.
I'm still constantly learning and that's what keeps me excited about the guitar.
May was so great to work with, he even took me over to Japan for some dates. It blew me away when he let me play his guitar on stage with him.
When I started out jumping around with a tennis racket, I never thought I would end up on a list of the best guitar players in the world. It makes me feel proud of the hard work I've put in.
Whenever I eat a meal, I always leave the last bite on my plate. I don't know why, it's just a thing with me.
An element I love about the blues is jamming with other musicians.
