A highly respected musician in the area by other musicians and bands alike, Barry has been playing guitar and involved in all-things music since the 80's. He knows his gear very well and has acquired a massive amount of it in his man cave/studio-practice room. He is very generous with it and is always willing to loan it out or educate a young aspiring guitarist with it. Barry also puts high values on his family and friends.
