Music is a Sacred Weapon

I've been fortunate to have a great career as a musical artist and to play in a few of the best bands in the world.  It's been an interesting journey, and I hope you'll enjoy the Rockality® stories of how it all came about.  Grateful to have this gift I didn't ask for, and to share my stories with you of the twists and turns that got me here.
