“The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a bad side.” ...... Hunter S. Thompson
The above quote by Hunter Thompson just about sums up the music business. I started on guitar at a very young age. I'm still at it. I will never master it. In my career as a guitar player I have had the privilege of working side by side with some of the greatest players in the world. I have written music for film, TV, advertising and live events. I was an artist on Capitol Records. I am in the book "The Canadian History Of Rock Music". As a performer I have played for a US President, many Hollywood celebrities, and performed in festivals and corprate events in both the US and Canada. I reside in a small town east of Vancouver, Canada.

I spend three days per week playing for Hospice residents in our town. I hope it is a way of giving back. I don't claim to understand much, but I have seen first hand the power of music, and I believe that other than love, it is perhaps the most powerful force inn the world.
