What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today? I think my mom and dad originally got me into music, they've always played records in our house and my mom's side of the family was very musical and theatrical.. My brother first taught me 'Smoke on the Water’ and a few other riffs when I was in sixth grade but I lost interest when I couldn’t easily play a chord. I never started actually playing an instrument seriously until one night in college my friend taught me some guitar chords and suddenly I became obsessed with getting better at playing it. If I hadn't started learning guitar I might have stayed focused in college and actually get a degree in Biology and not Anthropology. I thought I was going to go into a career of natural medicine or nutrition, but discovering I was a musician derailed that.
