I started playing guitar at an early age...
For me and many others seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan was enough motivation to start playing guitar. By age 6 I was enrolled in music at the local HAMILTON MUSIC center. Soon I was jamming with several other neighborhood kids in the basement. By junior high several bands AXIS, NAILS & WHITE NOISE came and went before my senior year in high school when
EXCALIBUR was assembled and started playing local parties and weekend gigs. After performing at the McCluer North talent show in 1977 we disbanded.
I started working in music retail at Dale's Music Hazelwood. Mo. as well as performing with a local wedding band SPECIAL EDITION. SE did all genres of music and was booked most weekends.
While enjoying my time with SPECIAL EDITION I heard of an opening for a guitarist with a up and coming local St. Louis rock band JEWEL, I auditioned and got the position. Performing top forty Rock with Jewel kept me busy for the next two years. I then jumped at the chance to play with Mark Moore & Annette Moore in a up and coming band called KidZ.
