notquitephosphenes asked: You are my hero and I want to be like you when I grow up. I wanted to be like Brandon when I was younger, now I just want his hair and I want to be like you. Who was your first influence as a guitarist?
I would love to have his hair but my scalp has a sunroof. My first guitar influence was Edge from U2. Probably back around 1984-85 I heard the solo in “New Years Day” on the live at Red Rocks album and I ain’t been the same since. Oh, and be like you when you grow up. Originals have the highest value.
