He also had a role in Wayne's World, as the guitarist of Crucial Taunt and guested on Pantera's 1988 album, Power Metal. In the 1990s he wrote the column "Power Sources" for Metal Edge Magazine. He is known for his trademark blonde bang-brown hair combo. Ferrari began his career playing Aerosmith tunes as a Joe Perry-lookalike.

He has been honored by the Academy of Arts and Sciences for his contributions to the 1995-1996 Emmy-Award winning show "Guiding Light," and became a two-time recipient of ASCAP's "Special Writer Award."
