ABOUT

I grew up in a musical family, and was accidentally provided a nice palette of rock influences to begin this journey in the early 1970's. My inspiration proliferated and evolved heavily during the 1980's. The 1990's saw my musical choices simultaneously expanding while becoming more selective by the 1990's. In any case, I couldn't learn enough instruments, couldn't learn enough songs, and was never left wanting of musical influences. What I DID learn though is that I can't do it all by myself.

I would really like to find some other musicians who take music appreciation as seriously as I do. So seriously, in fact, that they are inspired enough to introduce the world to their own creations. Let's look into what makes a song tick; find out where the bands of the past went wrong or how they achieved their success; explore an instrument and push the envelope of musicianship beyond what we thought was capable.

Sick of hearing those same old over-rotated Eagles, Kiss, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, et. al songs on the radio? Let's do something about it. It's time to make music important again.
