Being able to play and enjoy music
is a gift that's often taken for granted.

This music is a mixture of my own creations,
along with some collaborations with others.










How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I see the internet as a catalyst for marketing, promotional opportunities etc. With the advent of digital music transfer, the artists being able to share and spread their music in a way, which they never could before.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
They say that everything is negotiable. Have your people contact my people.
Band History:
I started playing guitar around 1964. After playing in some local bands, I decided to try working with some roadbands and that went on for about 25+ years. Along the road I started noodling on a piano and the rest is history.
Your influences?
I like a wide variety of music. Some of my influences include Mike Bloomfield, Steve Cropper, Jimi Hendrix, George Harrison, Jeff Beck, Jan Hammer, Max Middleton, Paul Rodgers, Eddie Hinton, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Nolen, Brent Mason, Tommy Tedesco, Bill Hullett, Willie Nelson, Jimmy Bryant, Hank Garland, Albert Lee, Will Ray, Van Morrison, Frank Zappa, Brian Setzer, Burton Cummings, Jack Jezzro and The Hellecasters.
Favorite spot?
Marco Island, Florida
Equipment used:
Anything that makes noise.
Anything else...?

Title caught my eye! Long way off and yet on it's way.
Lovely clean recording Mike..the guitar tracks weave together beautifully. Classical feel at times. Generates good imagery. Nice song. Can't wait to see that first crocus...

This is a Christmas tune.
But that is not all that we hear.
Got a feeling of something more.
Maybe it's just a feeling...
Keep up the good work!
