Well, I grew up on the streets of St. Charles, Illinois. About 40 miles west of Chicago, Anyone familiar with the area will know it is anything BUT a rough nieghborhood, and my parents did a nice job of keeping me fed and sheltered. I took an interest in music fairly early on, I played the Coronet, in 4th and 5th grade and a little in junior high. To be honest I never really knew how to play that stupid thing I wanted to play the drums. I quit band and joined the choir in 7th grade, seemed like a good place to meet chicks and reading music was optional. I sang in the choir and chorale all through high school, picked up the guitar along the way, never really took it seriously until I turned 30 something, my nieghbor heard me wailing away in my living room and asked me to sit in with him at one of his acoustic gigs. Thanks Steve, and from there i just started playing at local bars n stuff, thanks to my good friends at the Montgomery Inn, I never have to sing to an empty house. Restaraunt folks need little reason to go out and have a good time, thanks guys n gals. I hate writing these things, someone sign me so i can have someone else write this stuff.....ROCK ON!!
