What an insanely busy summer It's been, but fun! Finally I'm able to take a break from the action to give you all an update. First off, I have plans to resume my instrumental singles download series this fall with the release of "Dynamic Equilibrium." I believe as musicians, now and again we all find ourselves working on a piece that proves to be more challenging than anything else we've experienced in the creative process. This track in particular has certainly been the one for me and truly a labor of love! I hope you will enjoy it! Stay tuned for the official release date on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and more.
I'm very excited to announce the formation of my new Power-House Trio, "ROADHAUZ." The new band features the amazing talents of Bass-Ace Rob Farr (Warrior, National Dust) and David Henderson (The Knack) and your's truly. The band is hard at work writing new material as well as reworking some of the classics; Hendrix, Zep, among others. We will be launching several video promos this fall with live performances in the works around Southern California.

This project features all the classics from legendary Boston bands; Aerosmith, Boston and J Geils Band to name a few. All the festivals and events have been phenomenal with extended jams through out each set. More to dates to follow!

GuitarHD.com Interview with Steve Vai
Wow! It’s been ages since I’ve had a chance to update this site. I’ve been extremely busy with so many projects that sadly, my own website has suffered neglect ;-( . However, a recent turn of events has forced my hand (so to speak) and I now have something exciting and newsworthy to report.
On Friday, March 13, my long time friend and GuitarHD.com editor Jim Hagadone and I sat down to chat with iconic guitarist Steve Vai at his studio in Encino, CA. Mr. Vai was extremely cool and gracious as we talked for nearly two hours covering a range of topics including this summer’s second annual
Vai Academy, his incredible new double DVD/CD package, “Stillness in Motion: Vai Live in L.A.“ and much more!

Thrust Magazine Cover Story
“Reviews all confirm that Dallas has acquired the rare balance of creating intricate solos that are complex and
