Have loved music since Elvis and the Everly Brothers. I lived through the whole Sixties "experience" but saw it completely different from the typical baby boomer. I never did the drugs, sex and rock and roll thing; just the rock and roll. If the world was "Happy Days", I was Richie Cunningham. As a high school teen, I sang all of Ricky Nelson's hits for friends at parties. I have an incredible knack for remembering useless information. I'm among a diminishing number of people who still recognizes and appreciates singer/songwriter Jake Holmes' fantastic voice in commercials. I survived the Sixties but not without scars. They left me with a muscle car addiction that I struggle with still today. I ride motorcycles and play music to get me through it.

Bio

Began playing guitar at age 12. (Never made great strides; played same melodies and chords for decades.). Learned to play keyboards at the very late age of 42. Love movie scores; I'm one of those people who reads the credits. Favorite score is John Barry's "Dances With Wolves".

You're welcome. I gave this song only 4 stars because you set the bar pretty high with Those Who Gave All and Snake Road. They are clearly 5-star quality. I have to admit that I haven't listened to all of your creations but I will soon.

Your very kind David. I guess there is a good reason why there are 5 stars to choose from!
