Along For The Ride

FYI: This is an excerpt from a mag article written regarding the folks I have had a chance to work, record, tour, or the honor of playing alongside...

The weekend was the 2012 Namm show...looky-loos, gear. Reconnecting relationships. Had to tell my story, which I've never really told.

There was no school of rock or blues—hard knocks and paying your dues. There were the jazz and classical schools. North Texas State, New England Conservatory, Berklee, Juilliard...or just listening...Beethoven, Mozart, et al. By the way, their record deal was to be commissioned by a monarchy. Just like the majors, they had fame, women, the fast lane. Got screwed in the end.

Looking at the years 1970 -2000’s... were quite remarkable, extraordinary, really.
