I started playing guitar at the age of 7 , my father bought me an acoustic flamingo 10.00 $ guitar , I got my first electric when I was in Junior high school , I was 14 by then .. it was 1963 and the English bands were taking America by storm . I play in two bands all through out high schools . By 1974 I was the house act at * The Flick * coffee house , where I got to meet and play for some of the very best acts in the US. The Blues was Brought About After Loosing My Only Son in an Motorcycle accident .. There was No Relief unless I was Listening Great Blues Artist , So At The Age Of 61 ( 5 Years ago ) I Started To Play My Beloved Fender Strats and Telecasters . It Took 2 Years just to find the right gear to get the sound I wanted To Hear. So 45 Years of Playing Acoustic Guitars .. and Now a Humble Student On Electric Blues Which I Love Like The Air I Breath.
