Latest news is our recent live recording session at Center Staging in Burbank with The John Cannon Band. We recorded eight songs honed in during our many live performances in recent years.  Though we play many cover songs on stage, we don't usually record them.  This time three of the songs are covers: Tom Petty's 'Last Dance With Mary Jane', The Band's 'The Weight' and The Youngblood's 'Get Together'.  Everything was filmed for the making of a documentary.  Don't hold your breath, editing these things takes time.

Now that Covid is a bit more controllable we will be doing more live shows, so check the schedule page for these.




New Album 

My latest work includes "Songs For Intelligent Beings" These are updated as the sessions progress.  'Sweet Delareaux', 'Hold On'  and 'Seesaw Rider' have just been remixed and are up on the site. 

"Songs Of Old Montgomery" is also available to hear in the Music Section. "Composed of songs written in the early 70's about my home area with one guitar and one voice, just as they were played back then when originally written and performed."

The upcoming Gypsy Wizards Band album, all recorded in 1967-1968 in…

New Songs 

Have added a number of songs (all at the top of the Music Page) over the last few months and continue mixing them while they are already on the website.   When I hear something that could be better, I make it better.

We had a really  successful and enjoyable show at Froggy's in February and I must say our audience was terrific.  It was great to see a number of friends that we hadn't seen for way too long and we promised each other not to let too much time pass before we do it again.

Chris Squire 

We lost a friend and great musician this past weekend, Chris Squire of Yes.  He was more than a great bass player, he was also a great human being.  If the world had more like him it would be a better planet.

Our blessings go with you Chris.  

SCENES New Album from 1993 

Just added "Scenes" an album I finished in 1993.  Got some great players on it including: John Helliwell, Nick South, Mike Mullins, Gary Moss and Monika.

America 21st Century 

I've been advised that this song is not going to get mainstream radio play due to it's content.  I can live with that.  These are big issues confronting our nation and to hide from them would just prolong the time it takes to deal with them.  I don't see this as Republican or Democratic, just American.

The Huge Show KTSTFM Anaheim 

Just did "The Huge Show" on KTSTFM Anaheim two weeks ago with Johnny and Benny.  Whole lot of fun and got a chance to talk and share a bit of my history in the music business.  They were nice enough to put a number of my songs on the air and I thank them right now! 

Looking forward to a return visit in a few weeks.  Their show is on Thursday from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

I will keep you posted in the calendar section.

You can get the Ap to listen live at: tunein radio 

Mossquitos/Honey Badgers 

Recently worked again with Gary, Suzanne and Lyn on "Seesaw Rider" and have uploaded it for everyone.

They will be doing a show in the near future at American Legion Post 826 in Woodland Hills CA.  When we have the date it will be in the Calendar Section.

Have also uploaded a new version of "Sweet Delareaux" with the C 130 Hercules sound mixed in with bass by Thom Caccetta. and drums by Ronnie Ciago.

Mossquitos/Honey Badgers Victory 

Congratulations are in order for my friends “The Mossquitos” and backing vocalists “The Honey Badgers” for their recent victory in the Corporate Battle of The Bands held at Bogie’s.  They were up against a really fine band representing Guitar Center in the final and brought the trophy home.

I was fortunate this week to have Gary, Suzanne and Lyn put some vocal tracks on my song “Hold On” and have updated it on the music section of the website.

The Grateful Dead - Till The Morning Comes 

I was asked to do a Jerry Garcia song.  Having jammed on many Dead songs through the years, I hadn't recorded one.  My all time favorite is "Till The Morning Comes".  I really love this song.  It took a great deal of time and effort for them to put it together and is among their best studio recordings.  There was no point to copy it verbatim. After all, they are The Grateful Dead and I'm not.  I did want to stay true to the essence of the original recording but added Herb Englehardt on mandolin and the…
