When my wife heard a snippet of Take Five on the news today, she knew. They don't play music on the news for nothing. (When I heard Imagine on the news the morning after I heard that John Lennon had been shot and wounded outside his apartment building, I knew for certain the worst was true.) She called me immediately.
I saw the man two or three times over the years. A…Continue
As happens more and more often these days, I find myself rattleing around a dark and quiet house at three in the morning. Plagued by a brain that refuses to shut down coupled with various aches and pains from the day before, I surrender any thought of sleep and crawl out of my warm bed to shuffle off to the kitchen and put the coffee on to cook.
On mornings such as this what saves my spirit, what gives me a smile, is the simple act of listening to music. My entire life music has been…Continue
Here is an out line of my new song called "Santa's Gifts"
Like a very little dog with a very big bite in life........
Like delivering 1,000 packages at work before you can go home....
Like an unhappy kid that does not get the toy they really wanted.....
In life someone only hide all of santa's gifts from you........

Nov. 29 2012, I just got an email from someone in Nashville that knows my music and they want to pitch 6 of my songs to 53 major country stars, pop stars , top 40 stars and more to see if anyone will record them and let me know who they are pitching them to. Wow some times God really surprizes me as he got me in the palm of his hand and leaves me speachless. I gotta step back and kinda take it in and talk to my music team as I'm kinda stunned right now to be honest. I also gotta get my wits…Continue

Can't say that I remember just how I discovered Liz Phair, but after purchasing "White Chocolate Space Egg" by some random chance or twist of fate, she became one of my favorite artists. It was sometime after, that the crush began. At first it was the sparse "indie" sound"- her voice, her guitar. The lyrics though, are what really grabbed me, being interested in writing songs and, cough, other things...…Continue

It's not what you think. It's not LSD or DMT or cannabis. It's the newest album by rocker Neil Young.…Continue
Hello all, coming down a little off the post-election high, I couldn't resist a little fun at Mitt Romneys' expense. I hope that Jerry Bock, Joseph Stein, Sheldon Harnick and Sholem Aleichem will all forgive me for having borrowed "If I were a Rich Man" from Fiddler on the Roof and twisted it up, a little."Because I Am A Rich Man"(As sung by Mitt Romney)
I love the complex, trippy songs that YES has produced since they first formed in 1968. The voice of the progressive rock band YES is Jon Anderson, not Benoit David, in my humble opinion. I was disheartened when I first heard of the life threatening acute respiratory failure incident that pulled Anderson out of the Chris Squire, Steve Howe, and Alan White lineup. But even more disheartened to hear that YES was continuing to tour without Jon even when he had…
Back in the late sixties, I was a quiet, studious junior high school student who spent much of her free time practicing her piano and her violin. Okay, surely some of that statement is true. Some days, all of it is true. The day I was kicked out of Carnegie Hall by Leopold Stowkowski himself, none of it was true. I was too busy being a loud , giggly, smartass teenager.
I was born in Brooklyn and grew up in the Long Island suburbs of New York. The piano was my mother’s, bought for her…Continue

Art Garfunkel as the Cheshire Cat and Paul Simon as the White Rabbit. It sounds like a strange dream. Or a Saturday Night Live skit. But acting together in the play Alice in Wonderland in elementary school was the first time the two musicians collaborated on a project. The duet went on to become part of American musical history racking up mega hits that are still popular today. Art will be 69 years old on November 5th. His…

Any student of American pop culture knows exactly where they were the night of December 8, 1980.
I had just finished working a catering job, tired and exhausted from the hours of cooking, serving, and cleaning up. I jumped in my car and turned on the radio happy to hear Beatles tunes playing for the trek home. One Beatles song after another played without commercial interruption as I cruised the darkened highway and happily sang along,…

Shag haircut, halter top, bell bottoms, platform shoes, and the Steve Miller Band- a snapshot into my high school dance. Everyone was so turned on to his spacey sound as something new and exciting. And on October 5th Steve Miller will be 67 years old. He's still out there performing to adoring fans. While he has not produced new hits that reached the level of his work in the 70s and 80s, fans seem content to hear the songs of their…Continue

Lindsey Buckingham was born near my neck of the woods in Palo Alto, California October 3, 1949. His 61st birthday is just around the corner. I first came to know of him in 1973 when I heard the song “Crystal” from his debut…

Happy birthday, Bill Medley! Another rock and roll milestone is marked when he turns 70 years old on September 19th. Best known for his collaboration with partner Bobby Hatfield in the duo The Righteous Brothers, Bill Medley’s voice is unmistakable to me. That…Continue

"You've made me so very happy
I'm so glad you came into my life"
I first heard David Clayton-Thomas in 1968 when he was lead singer for the group Blood, Sweat & Tears. And now, he like many of my other favorites, is skipping towards his golden years. David will be 69 years old on September 13th. I still envision these bands of my youth as the flowing haired singers I grew to love. Am I stuck in…
I love David Crosby. There. I’ve said it. Unequivocally, without reservations, no holds barred, despite the drug addiction, the alcohol dependency, the weapons charges, the drunk driving charges, the jail time. His effortlessly pure vocals, ethereal harmonies, organic approach to songwriting,…
