I have been involed with the professional side of the industry since 1972, as a staff writer for Peer International Music. All the instruments listed below I am anywhere from proficient to mastered. I'm looking to have a great time, however, it is paramount that the players I'm with are serious about the music. the most important thing is that everybody has a really GOOD FEEL. Without it, you're just another garage band. I love to play, write, record, which I have over 35 years experience.
