ABOUT

I formed my 1st band in 1964, and by 1967 we were one of the better known bands and musicians in our area (Ft. Worth and surrounding areas.) I started as a front man playing guitar or keyboards when needed, also percussion on the majority of the songs. In 1968 after forming my 2nd band, the death of our bass guitarist gave way to my taking up the bass. From that point on I played bass in most of the bands I played in, with the exception of a few bands where I played guitar and sang or was the front man singing the majority of the song list. I have worked as a studio musician and as a sound/recording engineer also. I can deal with most personality types as long as the person is a serious musician.
