In our New Band 'Untoward Children' we have freeform Jams that we record. The stuff that we come up with is the basis of all the songs we've come up with so far. The fun of playing is really what inspires me.
Any Songs You Have Written That Hold An Extra Place In Your Heart? And If So, Why?
"Never Growing Old" was a song I wrote which was released on the first Babylonian Tiles Cd "Basking in the Sun at Midnight". It's special to me because It was my 1st professional recording of a song I had written.
What Are Your Thoughts On The Recording Sessions?
It's a mixture of fun and pressure...hopefully more of the former and less of the latter. All of the recordings we did with Babylonian Tiles were a lot of fun especially the 'Green Midnight Glow ' sessions which were done at the 'Rancho de Luna' in Joshua Tree, ca.
What About The First Show You Played, Any Memories?
It was up in Crestline, California. The stage Broke and I fell off the back during the one song I was brought up to play. Fortunately there was a whole lot of guitarists and horn players standing in front of me so I don't think anyone noticed... so I got up and continued to play
