Playing guitar and keyboards for 35 years, I began composing my own music over 20 years ago after I realized certain things that needed to be heard, played, and said were not available from other artists - on or off the radio. I learned many songs straight from the Rock & Roll radio before this, and I couldn't think of a better teacher. My major influences include Eric Clapton, Joe Walsh, Carlos Santana, Blue Oyster Cult, The Who, and The Rolling Stones just to name a few. The Designated Riders are four very talented musicians with widely-varied backgrounds, yet similar tastes. We are the finest Rock & Blues band I've ever been in - playing for the love and joy of music is an immeasurable blessing we want to share with you!
