Born in Chicago I got Influenced early on by Black Sabbath, ted Nugent, Van Halen, as well as Judas Priest. My Brother Dennis introduced me to guitar at the age of 16. I was able to "Catch on" pretty quick.
I was born in upstate New York in 1962. Moved to FL at the age of 14. I seen my older brother play a little riff on an acoustic and thought hey, I wanna do that. I learned "Smoke on The Water" to impress the girls and it worked! Lol. The rest is history. I continued to play a little bit off and on....
I was born on time! Mom did the “Homey Pokeme" with Dad two days after Christmas at exactly 4:44 and I was born on September 27th at . . . You guessed it, 4:44! I was born on time. LaSalle-Peru Illinois is where the famous Westclock clocks were manufactured , coincidence? I think not!
We are truly saddened by the passing of our great friend. He definitely was an original that had his own style of singing and could rock and roll the night away. Prayers to all his family and friends.
I was born and raised in a town just south of Chicago. I've been singing and playing music most of my life. My first words were "shut up" because I never stopped singing incoherently as a child...or as adult for that matter.
