Can you tell us a little about how you got into music? Presumably, you became a guitarist first and then a producer later on?
I started playing the guitar when I was 8, I had an acoustic guitar but I always knew I wanted to play electric. My stepbrothers had Strats hanging on the wall and I remember picking one up once when there was a Led Zeppelin song playing and just learning the song, figuring it out, and I knew it was for me. So by the age of about 10, I had an electric, a Gibson Epiphone SG — I still have the headstock.
