Interview with Alex Doyle

  1. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  2. A: Musicman, laptop, speakers, Kemper and my picks. I could record an album with this.

  3. Q: How would you describe your style?

  4. A: Imagine a heavier blues style of Joe Bonamassa mixed in with the fast, creative lines of Petrucci and co with the taste and melodic riffs of Jerry Cantrell. Well, it's a big ask but that's what I'm striving for :)
