After his father died when he was 6, he missed having someone with whom to discuss cars, argue about sports or teach him how to tie a tie. Instead, his uncles and cousins exposed him to an array of melodies, developing his musical tastes. One uncle who not only greatly influenced the guitarist's life but also perhaps his style is Carlos Santana.
