Welcome Shane and before we start I just wanted to say You really do RAWK!!!! Wicked tunz’s
Shaz: What can you tell me about your instruments? (i.e., Are you subject to brand loyalty or will you play with whatever’s available? What made you choose the instruments you have now? Was it cost or was it a style/model/brand/color preference?
Shane: Samick is my instrument of choice as I am sponsored by the company and have been for seven years running.I also play ESP base guitars as well. I choose to play these as they are provided to me at a lower cost and higher quality. My preferred model is the Samick Delta Base, for its playabilty and high end hardware plus it looks Damn Fine!!!!!
Shane: The best place I recall playing is The Galaxy Theater in Santa Anna Ca. Its always great to play a home crowd. As for the least favorite place I have performed was the Gig in Hollywood,Ca as it just really didnt suit my needs. At the current time I am working on a U.S. and U.K. tour in early spring of 2010 My new Booking Guy Daniel Tibbett is being instrumental it getting the show dates and locations set up.
Shaz: What Inspires you to write your songs?Shane: Hot ass women are definitely a strong direction as well as my life experiences. I write from the heart as where most great music should and does come from.
Shaz: How has your music evolved since you first began playing music
Shane: I would have to say that I pretty much started with early rock and just followed the trends of the rock industry until I found a sound and style that I identified with and made that the very core of the music I write and perform now.
Shaz: What has been your biggest challenge …
Shane: I would have to say it has been relationships, similar to so many bad stories I am sure everyone has heard before ,l to am in the millions of people who have had a large level of adversity in my life.
Shane: Wow man, It’s an opportunity to reach billions of people from the comfort of an office or sitting at home jamming with friends and discovering a sound ya like so much that ya want to share it with the whole world.
Shaz: and last of all Shane ….What is the most way out thing that has ever happened to you while playing a gig or on the road…….
