40 Year Music Veteran-25 YEARS BIRTHING MY bOOK


Background Information

Born into poverty. 2nd out of 10 children. Music entered my life in 1959 with the death of Buddy Holly and the Big Bopper along with Richie Valens.

My younger brother and I were Tom and Hucleberry Finn back in those years of the Fifties. The Sixties found me well versed in both singing and playing guitar and as luck would find it-My band The teemates became an electrifying presences on the East Coast Music scene through the Sixties

After a tumultous brief 10 year caeer in the Music biz backing up some of the greatest legends of Rock and Roll-Drinking took over finally bring me to my knees in  1976. I entered recovery and stopped drinking then. However the real battle was about to begin. Many very disturbing emotional and mental issues handicapped every move I made including the destruction of my marriage and every relationship I tried to form

Only after a sting on a Psych ward and massive surgery in Therapy was I able to step out into the world again and become a Journalist, Communications Directors of the local Real Estate Industry Branch and finally begin writing my book in 1987.

I returned to the Music Industry in 2008 after the deaths of three siblings all younger than I. wHY? BECAUSE IF i WAS GOING TO DIE i WOULD DO SO LIVING Music and creativity was my  first Passion and still remains so.

I am re-married now going on 15 years to my wife Judy. Just completed and finished my first Book entitles Lay my guitar down Gently via Xilibris. It can befound at online bookstores such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble along with various Bookstores. It is the Book of books if you are reaching your Sixties and there on.
