Leslie A. Gray was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His love of music was sparked by a movie he went to see named "It's A Hard Days Night" back in 1964! He immediately told his parents he was going to be a rock star and wanted a guitar! He got his first guitar in 1965 and by 1968 was playing everything from THE KINKS to JIMI HENDRIX with bands in North Carolina. (Leslie's first concert was Jimi Hendrix in Raleigh, North Carolina 1967.) Leslie has played with musicians from all over the world and was influenced by the like of B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Johnny Winters, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, and David Grissom just to name a few. Leslie has also recently toured with Sara Church as lead guitarist and will be recording with her in 2002.
