Ben Ptak / Bio

rom the 'Cosmic Eyes' album liner notes:
This Album is dedicated to my mother Ellen Ptak (1947-1992),
my grandmother, Geraldine Casey White (1919-2002), and my
grandfather, Bob White. Also dedicated to Eveliz Acevedo for her
inspiration. Nels Andersen for his life long friendship, Lorenzo Conte
who is like a brother to me, Rick for just being a friend, Renee and
Jimmy and my niece Julienne Walsh, and Howard Lerner for his
friendship, patience, and understanding. Most of all I dedicate this
album to Lisa Fleischman, even though we do not have a drop of the
same blood in us, you will always be my big sister. This album is as
much yours as it is mine. I love all of you with all of my heart!

Thank you,
Ben Ptak

Special Thanks to:
My Mother for giving me my life and my love of rock & roll music,
especially The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Hendrix, Prince, Buddy
Guy and Mozart. Lisa Fleischman, my mother may have introduced
me to David Bowie but it was you that turned me into a bonafide
David Bowie Freak. Thanks! Hahaha. Susan Averill and Pattie
Stikeleather, my favorite aunties. Dan Lannon, you will be missed!
My cuz VCN INC. Finally, to all the musicians - without your help and incredible talents
my songs would have been nothing but lyrics on a piece of paper.
Influences Buddy Guy, The Stones, David Bowie, Hendrix...
