I call myself JINXD66, because I've gone thourgh alot of hard times and I wonder sometimes if I'm jinxd. 66 is a reference to old Route 66. I've traveled all over the world. So I'm a jinxd tarveler. Started playing guitar when I was 14. I've always been a rythm player and lead singer. I played professionally for 14 years in my brother's band, DMZ. I've been doing alot of solo work for the past year. I grew up with music. My dad and uncles played, all three of my older brothers play. I grew up listening to everything from swing and early country to '50's-90's rock, soul and pop. My influences are rock, funk, punk, alternative, and soul. I like pretty much every kind of music.
