Musician

Been cranking out music either with live bands or records since 1983. Started on the LA punk scene, and now playing with Man's Body out of Chicago. I have only done original music. Blasphemous Yellow was my 80's band, Ferdinand in the 90's to 2003, Rough Church from 2005 and still going, but main band these days from 2015 is Man’s Body. I sing, write and play guitar, but only singing in M'b. It is still fun and artistically satisfying.
