Primary Instrument: Drums
After several years of playing standards and blues, I came to the realization that what I really wanted to do was play in a band that featured original music. Since there weren't any bands like that around, I decided I'd better start writing music myself. Writing music became an obsession, and it wasn't a good day if I hadn't sat down and written something. Finally, I reached the stage where I wasn't just copying the ones who had influenced me, but was beginning to achieve a level of self-expression. In a couple of years I had compiled a sizable body of material. Got a band together and am currently finishing up our first CD.
