Black coffee but I am rarely up that early. I have a really weird schedule I do a lot of recording and mixing very late.
Kiss Alive 2, I was a big Kiss fan as a kid. I started with a tennis racket but then progressed to a Hondo II les paul copy.
Chris Poland, The Ohm CDs are fanatastic! I was lucky enough to get him to record a solo on my new CD Time Space and The Electric.
Oz Noy - If Hendrix, Jaco and Jeff Beck had a baby he would probably sound like Oz...
I am Working on 'Toddities Vol 2' and rehearsing for Todd Grubbs Group gigs as well as doing shows with my Jam band '3 Green Windows'. Over the next couple of years I plan to really focus on playing live. I will be filming a DVD this summer and a live CD.
Pat Metheny (Trio) Amazing! If I was not married with children I would follow this tour around the country. I love his big band shows but there is nothing like guitar bass and drums.
Drums - Antonio Sanches
Bass - Jaco
Keys - Derek Sherianian.
Although I feel very fortunate to be working with Jeff Henry, Alan Tatum and Tony Arnone!
Over 20. My favorite is a prefactory PRS CE 24 with an 88 neck and a 91 body.
OHM, Amino Acid Flash Back.
The only thing that makes me nervous on stage are issues relating to gear or sound, such as bad monitor mixes or amps blowing up. If I am rehearsed and the equiptment is working playing live is a pure joy.
