First I Would like to give thanks to God, for giving me the talent that I have been blessed with. I've been writing poetry since 1979 while stationed in Germany after graduation. There I met many European artist like Arthur White who I think was the best drummer in Germany and who I've had the pleasure playing music with. I've toured with Percy Sledge and George McCray backing both on tours throuout Germany. I also formed or joined two other bands that was very popular througout the military club circuit and a few Germany club circuits. I've also made a couple TV apperences in Germany and stared in one movie "Die Zweite Heimat" now available on Amazon. I started my music career in 1978 playing Bass guitar which I had very good influences from the likes of Stanley Clarke, Mark King of Level 42 and Markus Miller. When I returned back to the U.S. I put the Bass down and took on the keys and guitar.
I haven't played live onstage since 1993
I was influenced by the greatest bassist of all times like Stanley Clarke, Nathan East, Markus Miller And Mark King of Level 42 who I saw live in Germany. That dude was fast
I'm currently running Reason 4.0 rewired to Cakewalk Sonar 8 Producer's Edition with various plugins form Waves, Izotope, and many more for mastering and mixing. You can see the full equipment list on my home website.
I would get on stage again if asked playing old school or touring with someone like Percy and George again.
