A true creative dream come true for this "new old guy" who's been in the game for over 54 years, my multi-volume audio biopic, THE BOOK OF BENJAMIN, is a heartfelt, joy-filled chronicle of my career as a prolific behind-the-scene force to contemporary music –


I want to share with you how blessed I feel to have been part of history. During this time, these "folks that I'm brought to you by "…I got to know and learned invaluable musical skills and life lessons from the proverbial "who's who" of classic rock, R&B, and jazz.


As you listen to The Book of Benjamin, time travel along to sessions and hang's, playing, recording, jamming, working with the who's who... Spirit, Wizard, Buddy Miles, Stevie Wonder, Three Dog Night, Duane/Gregg and the Allman Brothers, BB King, Johnny Winter, Freddie King, Muddy Waters, Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Orchestra, George Russell Composer, Chambers Brothers, Dr. John, John Lennon, Bad Company, Al Kooper, Max Middleton, Billy Preston, Robert Plant, "The Steve Lukather," Keith Olsen, Jack Douglas, Andy Johns, Lee DeCarlo, Lee Keifer, Bonnie Bramlett, Mike Finnigan, Bekka Bramlett, Stephen Stills, Steve Marriott, Mickey Finn, and my main two guys, Jimi Hendrix and George Harrison.


...all of this contributed to the development of what's been called by many "The Greatest Music Never Heard"- Until now!


But most of all, for me, having the opportunity to be around these incredible musicians, these incredible humans. Hanging out and getting to know them. Being given the privilege to absorb their talent and the gift of working with them...Just Mind-boggling.


This was our peer group. Our dinner club. You had to earn your way in. Once there…
