I've been playing guitar since about 1956 when a friend of my parents gave me an old Gretsch Syncromatic. A monster f hole orchestra model. The neck was like a big old oak table leg. I banged around on that for about 8 years.
I liked the stuff they now call rockabilly. They didn't call it that back then. We just called it Rock & Roll. Peter, Paul & Mary were my favorite folk singers. I met them a few times. Through them I became exposed to B Dylan. I never met him, Strange little creature. This was a very creative time for popular music. Lyrics were going every direction. Song styles exploded. The Beatles, Hendrix, From Folk to Psychedelic.

Still working on the next album. Hope to have it finished this year. I have an idea in my head of how I want it to be. If it takes longer then so be it. A blend of the old sound with a slightly modern tinge. I like the old analogue sound.
