Hey! So, I'm excited to play you my first solo record! Give it a listen, take a free song, buy a track or buy the record, which includes a couple of top-secret free bonus tracks!
After many years of playing Rock "n" Roll around the world, recording cassettes, albums and CDs with really loud and fast bands, like UNSOUND, FURIOUS IV and MONDO GENERATOR; I wanted to make a different kind of record, something a little more laid back and stripped down. Maybe I'm getting old or the tinnitus has moved into the brain? My Mom always asked, "why can't you make a record that you can understand what you are saying, why all the yelling and screaming?" Here ya go Ma.
This record started out as an acoustic thing, with a hand full of songs written for and about several friends who had recently passed away. After listening back, it seemed to want a few old-fashioned rock songs and some other true stories thrown into the mix. Some songs just stick with you in the subconscious; these are a few of mine. Good or bad, love it or hate it, here I am... volume one.
PS. If you want the record, but don't have an extra seven bucks, or if you are scared of PayPal, let us know, we'll do stuff.
