  • Good Music People

    One thing I’ve noticed when meeting new people at shows is that the big music fans are almost always very cool. It’s like they’ve found this thing in life that gives them joy and they appreciate it. Not to say non-music lovers are bad people, but they can be crabby. Music people love to talk […]

  • Let’s open with “More Than A Feeling!”

    It’s the summer of 1985 and I’m 16 years old.  Been driving since April and the band I was in found a Battle of the Bands opportunity at the Thirsty Whale in Rosemont, IL. This place was legendary in the 80s for hard rock. So, I lied about where I was going, to be able […]

  • “The Way Home” – 14 Years Later

    14 years ago, in the Spring of 2008, I released my 2nd studio album. I had very little free time available, with 3 kids and running a PMO team at HSBC. I’ve always made time for music since getting into the tech world around 1991. This particular album project was especially challenging since I had […]

  • I Threw A Rock Once

    In my youth, 30+ years ago I threw a rock. I was mad at an institution that I felt failed me. I was angry. I was afraid. I was frustrated. I blamed the institution. What I learned over time of course, is that it was 100% on me. My failures, my anger was all due […]

  • What I Learned During the Pandemic

    Sitting at the pool in West Palm Beach Florida on March 17th, I looked around and was grateful for being there. News was starting to get more and more serious about the pandemic and lockdowns looked immenent. Sitting here today, May 31, 2002 about 2 1/2 months later, the world is a much different place. […]

  • The Monster of all Tradeoffs

    I hesitated to write about this publicly. I’m not one to publish my opinions about current events, political issues or fake news. Usually, I stick to music and after reading this you might agree. What’s happened since January is a once-in-a-generation event. It’s so monumental, we probably won’t be able to get proper perspective for […]
