Why this name?
my mom and dad did a long time ago and I decided to keep it.
Do you play live?
I have toured a large part of Europe and United States in earlier years, but now I do about 12 large events a year as a band. Mostly studio work now.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I can mostly sing it's praises. The world has changed and put a lot of really good players out of work-that is really sad. But it's not the Internets fault.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
been there, done that. Am happy to be a songwriter, producer, player, orchestrator and all that goes with these stations.
Band History:
1969-1972 Toured Eastern United States with a band called Rich Mountain Tower backed by Ovation Records/William Morris Agency.
1974-1980 Toured Italy, England, Scandinavia, France with my own band and then signed by Atlantic Records with Hall of Famer Jeremy Spencer of Fleetwood Mac. My composition "Cool Breeze" Number 21 Billboard Adult Contemporary.
1985-present--own and operate studio in Chiba Japan 30 miles south of Tokyo.

Your influences?
born in Tennessee-into soul/funk/blues/R+B. Started out as a singer but moved into carrying a B3/Rhodes/Wurlitzer all around the world. Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Jeff Lorber, Jimmy Smith, Richard Groove Holmes and numerous blues/rock/pop keyboard players and producers.
Favorite spot?
I really loved Italy and Greece and now have fallen in love with Japan. But have a pretty strong belief system in the world to come.
