20 Years Ago

It's hard for me to believe but 20 years ago one of my inspirations for playing drums and listening to music passed away. Eric Carr the drummer for KISS.

Attached is a collage from the website in remembrance of Eric. I was able to see KISS with Eric Carr a number of times starting with my first KISS concert in 1985 and leading up to his final tour where I had front row tickets for the Hot In The Shade Tour in 1990.

In Lieu Of...

Don't worry, no bad news here.

Tonight I had my first rehearsal / audition for a band called In Lieu Of. A friend of mine plays guitar in the band and when their drummer departed I got the call for the gig.

The music is rooted in soul but backed by a rock band so you get a heavy rock band with a soul/r&b singer. The band gigs in both LA and San Diego and I'm looking forward to mixing things up with this new music.

As a teaser here is a recording of my first performance with the band tonight. Warts and all. Not too bad for a first run through on a rehearsal / rental kit.

What's New

Nothing new to really report here other than I haven't forgotten about this site. At this time I find that life continues to get busier and time truly does fly.

Look out for some more detailed updates in the next month or so.

Until then...

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year and welcome to 2011. 2010 continued the transition for me and after a rocky 2009 I couldn't have asked for a better 2010. New job, new girlfriend, my band released a new CD, too many concerts to count, lots of travel including multiple Las Vegas trips, a couple of trips to San Diego, Connecticut, the Philippines, Coachella, Texas, Denver and numerous work trips to San Francisco, Overland Park KS, New Jersey and New York.

Here's looking forward to 2011. Happy New Year everyone!!!
