    Location:
    Edwardsville IL (St. Louis Metro)
    Occupation:
    Retired from AT&T
    Current Setup:
    Rickenbacker 4003, 1981 G&L SB1, Fender Jazz (Geddy Lee), 1972 Gibson Les Paul Triumph, Warwick Starbass & Streamer, Orange Tiny Terror head, Orange SP212 Cab, Phil Jones PB100, Carvin micro 15 cab, Behringer 350 watt head, a bunch of guitars that I've been given because people don't know the difference....and probably some other stuff.
    Favorite Genres:
    Zydeco, Bakersfield, Classic & Hippie Country, Motown, 60's, Cuban, Twang, TexMex and anything the audience enjoys
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    The Zydeco Crawdaddys

    Previously Owned Gear:
    Ampeg Flip-Tops, Acoustic Amp (6x12), Hofner Beatle Bass, Gibson Les Paul Bass, Fender P & J, Epiphone Thunderbird/ EB0/Viola, G&L Tribute, Godin & Fender 5 strings.
    G.A.S. List:
    I usually buy a bass or an amp every year for tax depreciation. I'll be playing a couple more years so I'm really trying to get rid of a lot of things I've gathered over the years.
    Influences and Teachers:
    Joey Spampinato, Felix Pappalardi, Duck Dunn, John McVie, Larry Taylor and a bunch of local guys
    Hobbies and Interests:
    Fortunate to have a wife, kids & grand kids to keep me busy. Since I've retired, I've been able to spend a lot more time saying 'yes' to music opportunities. I also enjoy driving my convertible. I volunteer at a local soup kitchen, humane society and am also an election judge.
    It's a little bit of fun, a little bit of money. I've been playing 45+ years and am very fortunate be able to continue to take gigs. I owe a lot to everyone who's ever hired me because I've learned something new in every band I've ever been in. I tell myself that I could walk away from it tomorrow, but that's just what I tell myself.... haven't known too many guys able to do it.
