In an interview he said about himself:
“I started out playing guitar at the age of 12, or was it 13?.. doesn’t matter. But I remember I started playing bcoz there was no one else to play while I sang. So it’s been 12 years of being in bands as guitarist, mainly, rarely sometimes doing what I like doing best: SING. And three years ago, I gave it up… for a normal life, as defined by a 9-to-5 existence. Don’t quite know what made me change my views about the way I should live the rest of my life–to get back into the music–but I know it happened about 8 months ago… and this time, I’m not turning back. Good music is made from a lot of genuine feeling, and if u have the rare gift to make your audience feel what you're feeling.. then you're nearly there. — I'd like to believe I have that ability.”
