Live, up close personal performance, that's what he yearned for. Since then he has played for the likes of : John Phillips of the (Momma's and The Papa's), Al Wilson, Chuck Negron, and lots of 60's singing groups that reformed in the 1980's oldies revival. The Coasters, Platters, Vera Hamilton's Shrills, and he's opened for Chuck Berry, Mary Wells, and the list goes on and on. He has paid his dues as a sideman doing extensive studio work, most notably “Somewhere In This Room”, for Laura Purcell.
