I write and record my own songs on my home computer. It is a great hobby. I love it!
I've been writing songs for a few years. At age 59, I've finally become a rock star (in my own mind - at least)!
In the past, I played lead guitar in a rock band with some of my co-workers. I played lead guitar in a band at the August 30 - September 3, 2007 Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp. Great fun.
