Eric Calderone/ Erock
Eric Calderone seriously picked the guitar up in 2001, he has yet to put it down. After learning his first metal tune he became addicted, constantly learning new techniques and practicing every day for hours on end. In 2010, he graduated from the University of Tampa in Tampa, FL with a Bachelors in Music for classical guitar and then soon after graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Master of Orchestration for Film and TV.
He began Youtube on somewhat of a dare in late 2009. He has been metalizing pop, video game, movie, and dance songs ever since. Some of the many artists that have thrown out their approval include Skrillex, DeadMau5, Josh Groban and Underoath. He has also been featured on VH1's Best Week Ever, the Tosh.0 blog, BBC, Doctor Who, The Soup, Hot Topic, CBS, TV Guide, College Humor and one of his personal favorites The Smosh Pit. According to him " I don't think I'm better or worse than anybody. Everyone has something special to bring to the table. I just do what I do because I love it and very few things make me happier than holding a guitar in my hands."
