Dave had a lot of friends who were into music and started out on drums. When he realized he was 'rhythmically challenged' he switched to guitar. Dave has not had formal training - he plays by ear and is entirely self taught.
Favorite Kansas Songs:
The Wall, Lonely Wind
Indy Car & Formula 1 Racing, Philadelphia Eagles & Phillies, Travel & Reading, but only on the beach.
