In school, in addition to music, he played sports competitively: football, basketball and baseball to be exact.

He also played several instruments, starting out with the drums.

A football accident injured his wrist and caused him to drop the drums and switch to the bass.

He started with an upright bass, but the humidity of Florida where he grew up and his interest in R & B moved him to the electric version of the instrument.

His stated influences:

James Brown, The Beatles, Miles Davis, Stravinsky, Hendrix, Charlie Parker, Paul Chambers, Cannonball Adderley, Frank Zappa, Bob Marley.

Bass players that he influenced: Countless.
