My dad and grandpa played live music when I was just a boy. Started playing guitar at about the age of 12, added harmonica in my 20's and it took me another 25 years to get around to singing in front of people and writing my own music. I'm really enjoying this stage of my life and the many fun, great people I've met in the process who have encouraged me endlessly. I have learned to play some lead guitar and enough bass to be dangerous.
I try to remember this following truth:
This is the only life you get; If it's not what you want it to be, you're the only one with the power to change it. Make it happen.
