    Don’t have a schooled musical background.
    Play for fun, have played with bands, but I prefer
    the studio. I’m old school, I play live if I have an ‘album’
    for sale. The hassles and drama are more for the young
    guys. After a while, free dope and chicks, gets boring.
    I’m more into the creative part of it, making music.
    Although, I still like the chicks.
