I Play Guitar

Many moons ago, my parents and I would watch the Glen Campbell Variety Hour on TV. Glen always played and sang a song or two during his show. That intrigued me. I asked my parents for a guitar. I took some dull folk guitar lessons, and put it away. Years later, I got into Rock and Roll. I bought the live Blue Öyster Cult album, "On Your Feet or On Your Knees." I decided I wanted to do what the guy on that record was doing. I dusted off that old guitar, and began to play. I never stopped.

 

I currently play in Afterglow, a funk, soul and R&B cover band, and also in Surplus 1980, an original no-wave post-punk band. I am also a student at the California Jazz Conservatory.
