Born New Year's Day, 1947. BA in History from Rutgers Univ. in 1968. Spent the 70's playing drums in lounges all over the U.S., plus a USO tour of Germany and Italy in 1973. Taught myself to write songs with the help of lots of Budweiser and lousy luck with women. Spent hundreds of hours singing along with Carpenters' albums until I wasn't half bad.
I speak a little French and less German. I love the village of Celigny Switzerland, drinking Guinness while listening to my favorite MP3s, and a cup of coffee with real cream in the silence of 4 AM.
One of the best days of my life was a Sunday in September walking through the Plaines d'Abraham in Ville de Quebec, my Walkman FM radio playing music I'd never heard before or since, and for 2 hours, life was perfect.
