My story: took a break from Johns Hopkins & signed with Charisma Records in 1977 and a second record/film contract with RSO in 1978. In a parallel career as a folk-singer and song-writer, headlined The Cambridge Folk Festival in England in 1978, at the top of a bill including Don McLean and Richie Havens.

Surgery, research and education are my passion and I have always loved the intersection of medicine and music.

Also current Chief Editor of "Schwartz's Principles of Surgery".

The Brunicardi Family offers the world's first MP3 musical - Kid Crusade.

Of special interest: pictured on my Video "Roland" are:

What an honor to play with these legends. The time of my life!

Special thanks Co-Producers: engineer Mark Dearnley for an ingenious career that has brought us some of the best music ever and brilliant Patrick Davis.
