About Dave Abrams

Dave Abrams - Guitar News Daily Dave Abrams is a life long music fanatic. Much to the dismay of his parents and neighbors he decided that he was going to be a drummer at a very early age. By age 12 you could find Dave annoying the neighbors and anyone within earshot of his garage with his incessant drumming. After years of drumming he realized that drummers don't get enough attention and decided to try his luck at the guitar. That experiment failed miserably so he decided instead of torturing listeners ears with his own music that he would share his love of all things musical by reporting on bands, festivals and new releases instead.
