I was born in New York City in 1952, On Staten Island N.Y.C. I started playing guitar at age fourteen and never put it down. I played with The Unmanagables at CBGB, The Bitter End, Cafe Wha and the Rock Palace. I wrote Nine Long Years in 1990 it was produced by Kasim Sultan from Meatloaf. The song is my signurture song.Right now I am playing with the band, Off- Limits out of Dallas.I am playing Bass guitar. Even though guitar playing has been my mainstay, I chose to play Bass because there is a big demand for great Bass players.And I am getting a blast at playing it.God bless you all, Hope you enjoy my music.
