Original Rock Music - 45 Years Worth - And Still Going

                                                                 Some History

​​I won’t bore you with all the names of my bands over the years. Let’s just say it seriously started in
​the late 60's and early 70’s in local recording studios. The per
​hour rate was so expensive and money was always tight.
​​​   Married pretty young - and the baby girls arrived, there were times the music had to be put on the back-burner. (Baby always needed new shoes)…..hey, my sweet baby girls - no regrets.
​My wife & daughters were and still are, the most important part of my life.
Eventually, I built my own ever-evolving home studio. You would scrape the bucks together for the best recording gear for the dollars. No more per hour rate at the studio - plus now with the ability to **record at anytime, write, play and try and perfect your craft.
**At a very young age starting out as a drummer, I eventually learned to play multiple instruments, which at times allowed me to multi-track all my own recordings and get those ever elusive song ideas right to tape.
​​I played with a variety of bands and musicians thru the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Whether playing guitar, Hammond or piano, I was fortunate to have a band with some fine guitarists, such as my close friend Pete Wagula along with many Bassists, drummers, vocalists & horn players, etc.........
                                                ​Constantly striving to improve my home studio, I had my good friend Rachel Bolan (of Skid Row fame), spend many a late night in my small studio developing some of his numerous songwriting ideas just prior to Skid Rows sudden leap to stardom. Rachel of course is known as a great bassist, but many do not realize what a talented and skilled songwriter he is. Most people also don't know the focused, smart, (and very, very funny guy that he is). Currently he lives down south........ I certainly miss his company.
