At the age of thirteen, Nick received his greatest gift, a one speaker cassette deck player and two Def Leppard cassette tapes. He would begin his dream of a career in Music then and it has carried over to today. His influences are many, From classic rock of the 60’s 70’s to the sleaze metal of the mid 80’s including bands like Salty Dog, Faster Pussycat, Guns and Roses, Ozzy Osbourne, to heavier stuff like Slayer and Metallica Megadeth and Judas Priest. In the 90’s he took up with Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains. And found his way to Chris Cornell and Audioslave in the 2000’s, as well as Velvet Revolver, STP, NIN, and Tool. There are far too many influences to mention but aforementioned are a few. Nick loves most music and his spectrum starts at The Cranberries and goes all the way to Slayer! However, he will tell you that there is something special a guitar accompanying a great rhythm section that awakens his spirit inside!
