Vocally it was ‘Live Wire’ by Motley Crue , Poison tunes and Kiss.

How do you handle mistakes during a performance?
Be professional and move on.
How often and for how long do you practice?
You are the newest member in Modern Superstar. How were you selected, what was your audition like, when did you know you locked the job?
Became friends with the guys when my old band Afterlife played a gig with them and Great White. Ryche approved me about trying out we did some rehearsing and then the rest of the band came down and we locked it. Its been very good.
