    I've been playing for 50-plus years, and have played a wide variety of genres over the years. I also play some guitar, drums, and keyboards, in addition to maintaining my own 8-track (analog/tape) studio. At 65, still gigging with two bands. I have been the lead vocalist for most of the bands I've been with, until recently. A medical issue has backed me off to BG vocals and occasional leads. I did 'retire' for awhile, back in the mid-'80s - early '90s, until a friend brought me to my senses! My current plan is to quit the day after my funeral.
