Mike started taking formal music lessons at age 7. His first musical instrument was the organ followed by the sax. The organ had transformed into keyboards and although he no longer took formal lessons he continued to play on and off throughout the years. At age 14 he was at a friends house and he heard him play Iron Man on the electric guitar. He was hooked. He thought that was the coolest thing in the world and has been playing ever since. Early guitar influences include Metallica, Ozzy, Sabbath and a whole lot of hair metal. Early bands were all original and cut their teeth at places like Stay Out West, MacGregors, roller rinks and house parties.
