Replaced the last original member in The Nightcrawlers. Opened for Bob Seger with them. Played ahead of The Allman Brothers in Cincinnati at a huge underground nightclub called Reflections. That evening Greg Allman provided this bassist a never-forgotten piece of musical advice ... play for the love of playing. The Nightcrawlers worked out of Cincinnati through AJaye Agency. Thank you, Mr. Hertzman and Mr. Silverman.

Shared the stage with guitarist Adrian Belew (King Crimson, David Bowie, Talking Heads), in a band called Sweetheart, for a couple of years before Adrian joined Frank Zappa. Sweetheart once entertained Steven Tyler, who stayed all night to hear them at a Nashville club called Fanny's. Tyler graciously had the band backstage for Aerosmith's show the following evening and paid for a Nashville Columbia Studios session for the band. Their original guitarist was Joe Madrigal, an exceptional guitarist & entertainer (see www.madrigalband.com). Sweetheart worked out of Nashville through Cresent Moon Entertainment. Thank you, Mr. Tony Moon.

Left professional music performance in the 80's for a career in information technology. Still active as a software developer.

Returned to the stage in 2006 with an Upstate SC group called 99 Cents. Played with an alternative group called The Jones Machine and an 80's group called The Doc Brown Band. Was a founding member of Fat Cat Daddy, featuring the amazing Mr. Tim Everette (RIP). Next was a member of Hands Down, then Squeeze Play, a 6-piece that expanded to a 9-piece with a cookin' horn section.
