Started playing drums in high school. Wanted to play trumpet but didn't have the lips :) Been playing off and on ever since. Played drums in a power trio. Fronted a soul big band, singing and playing congas. Most recently vocals for the Reluctant Heroes. Have 3 kids, All of them are adults now. Almost died in 2008...DVT in the small intestine..Then later an issue with my foot that forced me to quit playing drums. Thats why I havent been around posting songs for a while .Retired now...more time to spend playing keyboards, midi drums and singing. Still singing with a couple of bands. The Reluctant Heroes were the last band I was playing drums with....they kept me around after my foot issues, now Im their front man.
