I'm just a 56 year old cement mixer driver who gets laid off every winter for 3 months.I enjoy writing songs and recording them myself at home on my 8 track Boss BR864 recorder.It's just another one of my many hobbies.I just do it for kicks.Just laid back musical enjoyment.

I have lots of originals and collabs on my page.My originals are are true stories about me,or people I know,or how I feel about things.Collabs are all efforts of me and my Soundclick friends.Doing collabs is my favorite thing here on Soundclick.Hope ya enjoy some of the tunes.

Why this name?
Cause that's my name.
Do you play live?
Used to play in local bands and also Rathbun Country Music Theater which is close to where I live.Played the usual bars,weddings,benefits,etc..
I enjoyed playing out when I did,but just got tired of the driving,unloading,setting up,then tearing down,loading back up,driving back home,and unloading again.LOL

Still play once in a while for local do'ins.

As far as special moments,back in the 80's,my flight instructor and I went to Kansas City Mo. to pick up an airplane.Brenda Lee was playing in a hotel lobby.While I was in the rest room my instructor told her I played guitar,and when I come back,she made me get up there and sing.Not such an easy task when your plasterd.LOL.

How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It's let the whole world access everybodys music,especially unsigned artist,who would never of had a chance before.It's just awsome!
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
NO. Not interested in a contract at all.Just doing this for fun and enjoyment.Besides that,I'm too old.
Band History:
Played in Local Bands,at taverns,weddings,benifits,4th of Jully celebrations,etc..

Also played the Rathbun Country Music Theater for a couple of years.
