If I had to do it over, I wouldn't change a thing.
What people think of me and my playing is up to them, not me.
I try to do my absolute best for the people who come see me play.
Be honest with yourself and the way you act when you hear music. That way, when people watch, they'll see something from your heart and soul, and as a result will communicate your feeling and thought much better.
I plan on doing a lot more work on my own, and discovering and doing more.
I listened to many different types of instruments and music, and have always tried to look at the bass as an instrument as opposed to only a bass.

My home studio is my private instrument for me only. It's not intended to record anyone but me.
I gave up a lot of things in exchange for my success.
