Eric – Lead Guitar


372I was born in Los Angeles, CA.  At age 13, my family relocated to the desert, Las Vegas, NV.  While growing up, I was very fortunate in that my older sister was always rock’n out in her bedroom to the tune of some great bands including Led Zeppelin, Rush, AC/DC, Styx, Supertramp, the Eagles, the Cars, Yes, and many others that to this day are some of my greatest musical influences and inspiration.  Randy Rhodes was really the one, though, that inspired me to start playing the guitar at age 15.  I took guitar lessons for a couple of years from a local rocker who gave me most of the tools that I needed to play guitar including music theory and technique.  Over the years I’ve played in a number of bands.  In the early 90’s,  I had an Alice and Chains tribute band, NDX (Near Death Experience) and after leaving that project, we regrouped a number of years later to form the Moody Bastards.  After some time off, and a few roster changes, I found myself jamming in my most current project, Burn Unit. 
  There is some really great chemistry that goes on when we’re playing music, so I hope that anyone who reads this takes the opportunity to come to see our show.
