I've had something to say for quite some time. I just never had the right situation to say it. After many years of raising a son and working as a "roadie", I had a few brief stints before being fired as a front man in a couple of rock groups. All the while, I kept writing. I am motivated by an attempt to rise above the hypocrisy that is the norm of so much of our society. I get really pissed off at the lies of the media and how so many just accept the propaganda as the truth. Then one night at the Rainbow Bar & Grill in Hollywood, Lemmy from Motorhead invited me to join him at the home of Helen Saber, wife of producer Danny Saber( Marilyn Manson, Black Sabbath, The Rolling Stones, U2, Black Grape). With the encouragement of Helen, I put a band together called "Kind Helen". We began to play on a regular basis at The Knitting Factory. It was hard keeping it together and even harder to prevent a variety of lead guitar players from "shredding" while onstage. "It's NOT that kind of band", I would tell 'em. I finally said F-it! and went on my own. I got a regular weekly gig at the Hookah Lounge on Hollywood Blvd. I knew that I was onto something when the owner of the club told me that several people would come in during the week to ask when I was performing next. There I was, just me and an acoustic Ovation. One night this chick came up to me and said, "when are ya gonna get off your butt and record a CD!? I'm sick of driving up from Orange County every week to see your ass!" Well, I went into the studio with Danny on "Wonderland". I told 'em I wanted to create Modern Psychedelic Rock that you can dance to. I was told in my dreams to leave L.A. and so have gone to Northern Arizona. Here's a few tracks that we've recorded so far. We're working on the last track of the Album of songs. I have started my second album here in Arizona with my new band. I hope to hand TWO finished collections of my work to an "Indy" label that can give me some tour support. ..
