"My parents took us to football games when I was nine and ten years old, and I'd go down and stand in front of the horn section. I liked music and played trombone in high school. Later, in college, I learned guitar because I needed the extra money and there was more work for guitarists than horn players. I majored in music, was a band director for several years, and now have this shop. I like the history of Memphis music, the way gospel, soul, and country merged into rock and roll."
