Life has been good to me and at this time in my life I must count my blessings. I have a loving, supportive wife (Kim), and three great successful kids, Bryan, Jenny and Alyssa. I have also been blessed with three grandchildren, Lauren, Nathan and Siddhana.
You know, a guy can't ask for much more!
I have always been a musician; it was in my blood and a family tradition. My parents were both involved in live radio back in the 40's with my mom (Happy Valley June) having a popular live radio show. In high school I had a couple of rock bands, Revelations and the infamous Illusions of Ecstasy (still a great name).
As a young adult I had the opportunity to travel with a number of acts out of Nashville working most extensively with LeRoy VanDyke and Roy Clark. My brother, Tom, and I had a group, The Campbell Brothers for a while after that.
A great friend and I had a successful show band, the Moore and Campbell Show for a few years.
However, when the 1980's came I returned to college and received a BME from the University of Nebraska. I started teaching music as a public school teacher in Manhattan, Kansas and worked on and earned a Masters, then a Doctorate from Kansas State (GO CATS).
A long story very short, I became school principal and served 19 years in that position.
This year I retired from education to get back to my roots, to who I am, and back what I do best. No more pencils, no more books, no more teachers' dirty looks. (Hey, I loved education, but now it is time to PLAY.)
My goals are to write the best songs of my life, put together the most polished performances, to travel, and to savor life to the fullest.
