we had a garage band!
In the photo to the right is my brother Bob, who already played in school band long before we got guitars so he knew a lot about music and theory. I on the other hand was being trained for seven years as a singer and dancer, chasing a career on Broadway but when I got bit by the Rock N Roll bug I traded in my tap shoes and makeup for guitars and loud amplifiers!
Bobby unfortunately left this world tragically not long after this picture was taken of us smiling, happily making music together. His passing would serve to be a profound sense of purpose and direction for me and I became very serious about playing music and being a professional Artist. There is not a song I play, not even a note where I don't think back about those crazy teen-age boys playing in their little band in mom and dad's garage to a yard full of kids from the neighborhood. Sometimes at least one patrol car!
