“Because you don’t have to burn books, do you, if the world starts to fill up with non-readers, non-learners, non-knowers? If the world wide-screen-basketballs and footballs itself to drown in MTV”.
Honestly I can’t imagine my life without Music in it (not sure I want to)? It went way beyond just casual listening at an early age and has bordered on “obsessive compulsive” ever since. I can remember my Mother being horrified when I came up to her with the first KISS album and saying “I want this”… Say what you will about KISS (and I have a tendency to agree with most negative comments now) if you were in the ages of 10-15 in the middle/ late 70’s this WAS the band that got you into music, don’t try to deny it (I won’t). My room was covered floor to ceiling with KISS posters (quickly covering the STAR WARS wallpaper before it)……. Entering 7th grade AC/DC and Back in Black quickly became the “Grown up” thing to listen to by my peers. I took many jabs for still listening to that “kiddy Rock” KISS band. But I stuck to my guns for a long time (probably to long) and continued to fly the KISS flag pretty strong even as my tastes “matured” and developed over the years. When I saw the “original 4” members on the “Farewell Tour” in 1996 I closed the books on that chapter and I only wish that Gene & Paul had done the same. I still think Ace Frehley is the coolest MoFo to strap on a Guitar (and destroy it) and probably had more to do with me wanting to be a Musician (I play Bass) than any other musician out there?
Ya see I’m not really into this whole “Blogging” thing, and Tweeting is for Birds so…
Aaaanyway, I figured I would at least keep an area for updates and random foolishness I may feel compelled to post at times (trust me they will be few and far between).
So I guess this will be the place for that all to happen?
I am honored to be one of the first artists, along with my friends Ed Nute and Judy Quinn to exhibit their work at the Spire Center for Performing Arts in Plymouth Ma.
The Spire Center will be a place for Music, Art and Theater.
Opening night will be April 11th at 7:00pm.

As always, Thank you for supporting the Arts!
