Gene started as a drummer at 11, joining the musicians union at 13. He soon realized that he wanted to write music and unless it was going to be an endless drum solo, he needed to learn another instrument. One of the advantages of playing with good players was that if you wanted to learn a new instrument, there were endless opportunities to have them show you. 45 years later, Gene plays pretty well any instrument.
Today Gene spends his time writing and recording music as well as jamming with a few friends.
High on Gene's bucket list is to chart a song where he wrote, recorded and produced it himself in his home studio.
