I have been a professional musician since High School, playing in various bands and clubs. In 1969, the year I graduated, I joined a group called Yellow Hair. We based ourselves out of Omaha, NE, as that is where the bass player, Scott McCarl, was from. We had a couple of local 45s "Somewhere" b/w "Talent for Lovin" (this song has since become a Garage Band classic) and "I Wanna Be Free" b/w "Dreamin." The Yellow Hair group remained together for 2 years and broke up in 1971. We had quite a bit of local success and our "Somewhere" 45 ended up at about #10 on the St. Joseph, MO radio chart. Scott would later go on to join the Raspberries. I continued playing in various bands throughout the 70s and in 1979 moved to Florida to join a band, and lived in Florida and Georgia for about 5 years each, playing in various housebands and roadbands, playing in various states; Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Alabama. For the last 10 or so years I have been primarily a stay-at-home musician, writing songs. My songwriting interest started as soon as I picked up a guitar, could play 3 or 4 chords, became an official Beatle-nut, and has continued since. I've always been dabbling at writing songs, my first love besides guitar. I write all styles; country rock, blues, folk, pop, some guitar instrumentals, etc.
By the way, if anyone is interested in performing or recording any of my music, please contact me.
In my links I have a link to the St. Joseph Music Foundation. When you reach that page in the upper corner is button you can click to pull up their internet radio station and there you can search by artist, I believe, and you can request my songs to be played, right now I only have "Busy Box" and Good Ol' Lucky me" available for play. Every now and then, if you could do this, I would really appreciate it!
