This is from one of my favorite guitarists, this new-age freak Anthony Mazzella.QuoteMTV: How did you get your start in music?
MAZZELLA: As an adult we experience passion, sensuality, and ecstasy through love and intimate relationships. As a child these feelings were evoked in me through music. I was in love with music as a child and still am to this day.
MTV: Who is your biggest musical influence?
MAZZELLA: I would have to say Eddie Van Halen.
Yeah, Eddie's my fav. too. An interviewer asked him a while back what Eddie thought made him stand out among guitarists. Eddie said, when I pick up the guitar each day, I look at it and say, "What ELSE can it do?"
