Born and raised in Austin, TX Jimi Hendrix showed Barney Cockburn what guitar was late one night as he viewed Channel 15, formerly "Austin Music Network," our Public Access alt-MTV at the time. This helped Barney truly discover his passion for music that he will never give up on. A tectonic shift then occurred upon his discovery of Dimebag Darrell. He went from a blues player to whatever he is now. Come see him cross endless genres, playing along to his self-composed originals.
