Question #1 You have had a number of different producers, and all great, work with you on various projects. But what producers had you placed on your wish list at one point or another? -- Donald Edward, St. George, UT

ANSWER: I have been fortunate to work in the studio with several great rock producers, namely Bob Rock, Bruce Fairbairn and Bob Ezrin, all of whom are exceptional. If I had the opportunity, Mutt Lange would be my choice of a producer to work with. I'm especially a fan of his work on the earlier Def Leppard albums, High 'N' Dry and Pyromania and AC/DC's Highway To Hell , Back In Black and For Those About To Rock.

Question #2 I've been a huge Black N' Blue fan since I was 11, I also LOVE your work with KISS. And I just wanted to know who were your favorite guitarists. -- Vivek Raghavender, Los Angeles, CA

ANSWER: Well, I like Pete Townsend, Brian May, Davey Johnstone and Ronnie Montrose to name a few.
