I am 60 years old. I was Born in 1945 and I started playing (Hawaiian) Steel Guitar in Auburn, Washington in 1955 and then started playing the Trumpet in school band about the same time. I started playing acoustic guitar and singing in California (Los Angles/Mount Baldy about 1973. It's been an on/off, do/don't, like/don't like, put down/pick up ever since. I was screwed up on drugs for a long time, I have been drug free for only ten years and I always will be, I always knew they were wrong but I followed the crowd. I will play and sing and fight this drug war until the day I die..and then some more if I can, I will be fighting this injustice from the grave. Drugs destroy. The greatest of all communications is singing and making music, it comes from our insides, our whole being, like a bird or a frog or a cricket.
