Dave became interested in music while listening to the Beatles and various local bands. He
and his neighborhood friends formed and taught each other how to play music and later
formed the Knight Riders Band. Bob and Dave later helped form the band Childhoods End
and they went on to win 1st place at the Pacific High Invitational Battle of the Bands in 1967
in San Leandro CA. Dave helped form the band Marshall Rose, which went on to win 1st
place at the Teenage Battle of the Bands at Chabot College in Hayward CA in 1973.  He has
played throughout Northern CA for over 40 years. His influences are (to name a few) Eric
Clapton, Jeff Beck, Allman Bros., BB and Albert King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Carlos
Santana. Dave has been known to catch lead fever. Once you have heard his searing solos
you too may catch the fever. He recently retired from the Carpenters Union. He now has
more time to spend playing music and spreading the fever.
