He became famous in the local scene for taking the once record player to unfathomed new heights, experimenting in sound which would become the culture's musical notes. QBert soon made San Francisco the DJ capital of the world, and led the international attention straight into the Bay, the turntablist's Mecca. From then on, he was the World's ambassador of the skratching art-form. He is compared by his peers as the Hendrix of our time, and the leading voice that helped usher the turntable as a true musical instrument.
