The Original Blues Brother (Is that a "C" chord)

A working Musician?

That's right, I'm a musician who works, only as a carpenter instead of as a musician. I make plenty-o-time to work on my music at home though, subjecting the wife and kids to countless hours of "senseless" guitar playing. I've made sure all my buddies have guitars too so I can play when I go visiting. I must not be much for conversation, huh?

Is the boy crazy?

Yes! Beyond a shadow of a doubt. I hear music in my head 24/7. When I go home I simply try to "let it out". Was in a very successful "garage band" for several years. We called ourselves "Deadfish" and we toured the "garage circuit" extensively. We did numerous gigs in my cousin's attic as well. I have played with almost everybody over the years (Ok, I cheated. I played along with the radio and many LP's and tapes.) Click Here for my tunes at
