D is the founding lead guitarist for the group The Madness Remains (TMR) with many years of stage and studio experience. Originally from the Chicago area, D played with several bands back in the day, covers and originals. He played the club circuits, tours, demos, recording, etc. and had a blast in the decade of decadence.
His early influences were Randy Rhoads, Alex Lifeson, Viv Campbell, Jake E Lee, George Lynch, and Warren DiMartini to name a few. Yea, pretty much the 80's "guitar god" stuff.
D played mostly the 80's stuff (Def Lep, Ozzy, Crue, Maiden, Metallica, Priest) when he was younger and now plays everything from U2 & acoustic stuff to Disturbed & Godsmack. He also enjoys writing original music in all styles. You can find some examples on bandmix.com
D exclusively uses Mesa Boogie Amps & Cabs, and the Fractal Audio FM3 or Axe Fx III for all preamp & processing. He also uses L6 Digital Wireless & Furman Power Conditioners, Jacksons/Charvel custom, Schecters, & ESP guitars.
