"It was when I was nine years old, which is when I first started playing guitar. One of the first things I did was get a stompbox, and it was a BOSS Super Overdrive. In fact, it’s the same one in the picture [above], which is why it’s missing a knob and all banged up. I’m 34 now, so I’ve had that pedal for 25 years. My second pedal was a BOSS CE-2 Chorus, and then I got a BOSS phaser and delay. I became a huge BOSS fan."
