Chris Elliott

From the age of 13, Chris picked up a guitar and never looked back. His earliest influence was Kiss, who left an indelible impression on him as a young aspiring rocker. Although it was not Kiss or Ace Frehley that directly inspired him to play guitar, it was the spark for what was on the horizon. 

A few years later, it was all about Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. And then after hearing Randy Rhoads on the first Ozzy Osbourne album; that sealed the deal ! Jimmy Page, Tony Iommi, and Randy Rhoads were Chris' early guitar heroes, followed by Gary Moore, Michael Schenker, and Yngwie Malmsteen, and a plethora of other monster guitar players. 

Nowadays, Chris is a huge Dream Theater and Symphony X fan, as well as many other metal bands, but he also likes a wide variety of music. Basically anything that has a ripping guitar player or talented musicians is usually something Chris will totally dig. "I've been in the pit for Slayer and also the orchestra pit too; if it's good music, count me in, I'm there !"
