“I started singing in a band called Blue Bourbon, now called Mersy Street; I started with some guys in the neighborhood. We did all the high school gigs and stuff like that. Then in ’73 after our lead guitar player, Jim Barnett, was killed in a train/car accident his parents gave me his guitar. I started playing really to honor this profound gesture of gratitude for our friendship. After a gift like that you can’t just walk away and say, “Oh it’s to hard or something”. I still have that guitar too! ’63 Fender Music master. In two years the band members changed and we started playing clubs, doing top 40 songs of the time. It was then (1975) I started writing songs and recorded the projects first album **“Kingsford Drive”**. That album is largely a tapestry of a 17-year-old kid’s carefree days of summer.
