I first became interested in music at a very early age (one year old) as I rode around on my mother's vacuum cleaner humming in minor keys. In later years I sang in the Grade Chorus and eventually picked up the trumpet which I played for six years in the School Band. After graduating from High School I dropped the trumpet and picked up a guitar. That first axe was a $5.00 instrument. Since then (1964) I have had numerous guitars. My present guitars are Martins ( a 000-18 & a D-28). I have been composing music and writing lyrics since 1964 and have a repertoire of about 40 songs on the acoustic guitars. I've written over 200 songs and have hung out with the likes of Jerry Garcia and David Grisman. My drummer, keyboard player and percussionist on the Ordinary Man album is Chet McCracken, the former drummer for the Bonnie Raitt Band, Phil Collins, the Doobie Brothers and many other well known artists. Chet also was a key figure in mixing the Ordinary Man album. Many thanks to Chet for his excellent contributions! Don Saviano adds some righteous bass lines to most of my tunes. Thanks a million Don!!! 'Ordinary Man' is my second CD. The first album came out in 2003 and is entitled 'Big Plans'. It is also available on CDBaby. My Ordinary Man album has the lyrics to the eleven songs inside the Digapak. The graphics on this album are very well done. The production of the album was done by Discmakers. They did a terrific job both with the graphics and the mastering of the songs. All of the tunes on Ordinary Man are my original works both in composition and in lyrics. There are some blues numbers (Love A Girl Like You & Cruise Control) and a couple spiritual numbers (Think, Say... Do! & On An Angel's Wings). The rest of the songs are folksy love songs. Four of my acoustic instrumentals are currently on TV shows, primarily out on the west coast (Every Woman, Recipe TV) and a couple other shows. I have played on a local TV station and currently have several songs on internet radio stations. In addition to my musical enterprises I am also a novelist, having had a book published in August of 2005.
