My Chicago Kid's TV book is REALLY coming along! Check my TV articles at two new songs will be up next weekend!

Today is the first day of SPRING! A bit chilly in Chicago


I heard from ARTHUR RANKIN yesterday. He is a very generous man and a good friend. Happy to help him out whenever I can.


My pal SCOTTY JOHNSON, lead guitarist of the GIN BLOSSOMS, performed on my first two cds as well. He created some wonderful guitar work and thinks very differently than I do, when it comes to solos and rhythm and that is what made his participation so special. He has a solo CD out now and you can find it on his MY SPACE music page.

My pal ROBIN has an awesome studio in TEMPE, AZ called URANUS for recording or rehearsals! He Produced my first two CDs and performed on them as well. One of the best voices in rock and a multi talented person and friend!

I am on TWITTER now

GEROGE KELLER: An amazing Engineer

George Keller, Robin Wilson and Myself at URANUS RECORDING in Tempe, AZ
George is an amazing engineer and worked on my first two cds. We have a wonderful working relationship and have become friends over the years. I never have to say much during the mix downs, because he pretty much nails it right away. Robin only works with quality people and George is definitely one of them.

Phillip Rhodes is the original GIN BLOSSOMS drummer. He no longer plays with the band, SCOTT KUSMIREK is their hired gun now. During my first session in TEMPE, AZ, Phillip had rejoined the band briefly and played drums on my songs "Goodbye" and "Brand New Love." I really liked the sound he had and what an amazing drummer.

Sunday music...

We added some slide guitar to "Drama Free"

Beautiful day out today in Chicagoland

We planned on recording today BUT ended up rehearsing and tightening up the songs that much more. Unfortunately, we set something up with an unreliable party.
