Where are you from and how did you meet?

I am from Milan, OH. I met my guitar (Martin) in Musicians Alley in Downton Sandusky.

If you could be a member of any band (past or present), which band and what band member would you be? Why?

The Mothers of Invention, as a guitarist. They are excellent musicians, it’d be a huge honor.

If you could open for any musician or band, who would it be?

Alex Bevan. He is the one who inspired me to be my own kind of “Skinny.”

What decade does your band belong in?

My music has the sound of the late 60s, but if my music were to belong in a decade, it would have to be now. I’ve been inspired by almost every decade of music, and I like to think I have something in all my songs that everyone can enjoy.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what is one album you’d be happy to have with you?

Probably The White Album by The Beatles.

What’s the worst gig you’ve ever played? Best gig? Is Instaband your first gig?

The worst gig I’ve every played would be the high school dance. Only 10 people showed up to it and we Brough all of our equipment. The best gig I’ve ever played, I was sick. The entire day before the gig I was out of it on a couch. I played the whole gig on pure adrenalin.

Name one song that you would absolutely never cover.

“Wonderwall” by Oasis.

What’s your writing process like?

I find a good chord progression, write some lyrics, and try to find something to make my song stand out in the sea of G, C & D.

Any fun facts?

The name Mullet Man started because someone was trying to insult me because of my hair style. Ever since, the name Mullet Man has become locally known.
