My brother (top, on the left) was older & wiser. He still is … Back then, he enjoyed illusions of becoming a great athlete, but eventually went on to be a psuedo-celeb in Philly doing traffic reports from a helicopter with the ATLANTIC GO PATROL. Me, I just wanted to play guitar and wear cool hats, as you can see by the photo! And so the journey began … but back then “Mom” had a different idea for my music, like … piano lessons at age 10, arghhhh … Saturday mornings and my buddies were out at the playground shooting hoops, throwing a baseball around or trying to kick field goals, and I was stuck in the house with an old fart with bad breath, … sheesh! But, to be honest – it certainly made learning the guitar alot easier at age 14. Mom’s have a little foresight, I guess. And this year (2017) marks 52 years since my 1st stage appearance. 52 years!!! Wow, that’s A L O N G time. Maybe its time to try something different … maybe golf … “Fore”!
