Bio

Who the hell is Sharkboy?

I First picked up the guitar when I was 14 years old. As a teen in the late 80s I was an extreme metal head. I lived for Iron Maiden, Metallica, AC/DC, and Judas Priest.

As my guitar playing progressed I dove head first into the NeoClassical guitar movement lead by Yngwie J Malmsteen, and Paul Gilbert and the rest of the Shrapnel Records crew. I spent most of my high school years locked in a room with a metronome practicing my ass off.

I started college as a music major studying classical guitar. I soon diversified my guitar repertoire by studying Jazz, funk, and eastern music. I was heavily influenced by John Mclaughlin and his Shakti and Mahivishnu Orchestra.

I combined the shred, classical, and progressive jazz influences to create my first band, Purgatory. Purgatory never quite made it out of the basement but created a foundation for my next band [Hermafro?].

Hermafro added Tony (of Swampazz) on Guitar and Vocals, and Eric Mafea on Bass to the Purgatory line up of my self and Danny Almoduvar. Hermafro took the Progressive Jazz / Metal sound to the next level adding electronic textures to bludgeoning heavy guitar riffs and grit filled vocals.

These days I work a regular day job, have a hair cut and act like a yuppie most of the time but I still play guitar and write music. I will be posting my latest and greatest here on MyOnlineBand.com from time to time. I hope some one will like it.

Why do they call you Sharkboy?

The nick-name Sharkboy comes from my ass hole fiends making fun of the stupid faces I would make when I play guitar. They called the face the shark face. From the shark face came sharkboy.

Why did you create MyOnlineBand.com?

After taking a break from music for a while I found that I needed a way to get back into it. Having a new family and a full time job made it difficult. I started looking on the Internet for people to collaborate with and found the current state of the software and web to be disappointing. For the first song I did on the web, A Prayer For Maria, I found it impossible to complete using other websites and started creating my own very simple site just to get this song done. 
Over time I have added more and more features and more people have joined.
Today we have over 8100 members working on 1000s of songs with over 10,000 songs in our online radio station. We also get around 30,000 visits per month from people around the world who just want to check out music.

Influences

Stevie Ray Vaughan , Allen Holdsworth , Gary Moore, Frank Zappa, Mr. Bungle, GG Allin, AC/DC , Metallica, Tool , Van Halen, Yngwie Malmsteen, Joe Satriani, John Coltrane, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Black Sabbath, Pantara , System Of a Down, Sublime, Sonny Landreth
