Lou first started playing guitar around age 10. With Eddie Van Halen as his guitar hero, he began learning solo techniques and it became obvious, even at that young age, he had incredible talent as he quickly mastered his instrument. He formed a band with his brothers and Uncle and within a few years, Lou started writing songs. He went on to play in a number of other local bands until re-forming with his brothers once again. Lou is one of the original DAWGS, helping to start the band in 2014.
