Bernie Bernie Headflap

Alan McCabe was born with the rare disease cystinosis. The disease has caused Alan to have kidney failure, stunted growth and blindness. Something else in Alan's genetic make up has given him an intense drive to express himself artistically. Throughout high school and college, he acted and wrote many short stories, a few of which won national awards, and a couple plays, one of which was performed at two colleges.

By the time he graduated Ursinus College, where he formed Bernie Bernie Headflap, he knew that rock music was the only form of self expression he wanted to work in for a very long time.

In the band's first 15 years, there have been many lineup changes, but Alan has remained the primary. From 199 to 2006, Alan wound up back on dialysis, and BBH became a one man project during those years.

Alan has received few sales, not much radio airplay or acclaim, but writing the material remains his primary interest in life, so he sees no reason to quit.

At this point, the latest lineup Headflap interprets Alan's material in strict rock fashion while Alan again works alone as BBH, concentrating on experimental electronic compositions.Alan McCabe was born with the rare disease cystinosis.
