I Should Be Asleep…

It looks like I am up to one of my old tricks. It’s 1:28 in the morning, and while others are fast asleep, I am wide awake and on my computer.  Actually, I am on all 3 of my computers and my iPhone.  You are probably thinking that is pretty excessive, but there is a reason.  I am creating a video on my Mac, blogging on my PC and looking at files on my work computer, and my iPhone is […]

Marching to the Beat of My Own Drummer

I was asked last night to give a brief synopsis about my passion for drumming for a potential opportunity to be featured along with my drums in an upcoming magazine article.  This is one of those moments when my professional life touches my personal life.  Actually, the two overlap all of the time, mostly of my own doing.  In person or on-line, what people see everyday is me, the real me!

Inspired By Bruce Springsteen

To bring you up to speed, I started […]

“I’m not the cat I used to be I’ve got a kid I’m 33 baby…” I was 19 when I first heard “Middle of the Road” by The Pretenders.  Since Chrissie Hynde was my idol, I thought she must be right about being in the middle of life at age 33.  Then, I approached age 39, and I knew she had to be wrong.  Now that I am a little bit older than that (I’m not saying exactly how much), […]
