Original Rock Music - 40+ Years Worth - And Still Going
JD played in many local bands in the NJ music scene. Let’s just
say it seriously started in
the late 60's and early
70’s in local recording studios. The per
rate was so expensive and money was always tight.
He married young - and the baby girls arrived, there were times the music had to be put on
the back-burner. (Baby always needed new shoes)…. his baby girls - no regrets.
Talk with JD and he'll boldly tell you "my wife & daughters are, the most important part of my life."
Eventually, he built his ever-evolving home studio. Musicians 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 JD starting out as a drummer and eventually learned to play multiple instruments, which at times allowed him to multi-track all the recordings and get those ever elusive song ideas right to tape at any time.
JD played with a variety of bands and musicians thru the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Whether playing guitar, Hammond or piano, he was fortunate to have a band with some fine guitarists, such as his close friend Pete Wagula along with many Bassists, drummers, vocalists
& horn players, etc.........
He of course was constantly striving to improve the home studio. His good friend Rachel Bolan (of Skid Row fame), spent many a late night in JD's 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....As JD says "Many do not realize what a talented and skilled songwriter Rachel is.
Most people also don't know the focused, smart, (and very, very funny guy that he is). Currently Rachel lives down south........ I certainly miss his company."
