Instead of the same tired old bio, here's the scoop on me in my own words...... I have been playing music for money since I was 17. Music has always been my "mistress" I guess. I wrote my first song at 14 to impress my girlfriend and over the next 3 decades or so I have written 100's of songs. Some of them memorable, and some forgotten before anyone ever heard them. Some of them were "good" enough for other people to learn, play and even record.
I have been fortunate enough to play for all kinds of people. I have played from the banks of the Little Mo in Lower Arkansas to the bright lights of Vegas and everywhere in between. I have played in beer joints, festivals, swanky clubs, restaurants, casinos and even on the street. I have shared the stage with everyone under the sun, from 3 legged Mule to Gov't Mule. I have flirted with the big time and floundered in the gutter. One thing has always been constant...the music. I have learned alot about people and human nature and what people like. Actually, it is very easy to entertain folks. I give an audience what they want and don't force feed them with a bunch of bullshit...i.e..If the crowd are Merle fans, I won't play any Sabbath and vise versa!
I am completely crazy and I get even nuttier when you add Jagermiester and Budweiser. I have done some pretty crazy stuff on stage from playing a set in my underwear to busting a fender acoustic on the floor. I have been very fortunate throughout the years to play with some of finest musicians in this part of the world and as far as I'm concerned, on this Planet! To name just a few, Hooch Green, Larry Womack, Billy Burns Jr., T.Y. Ford (RIP), Frank Allen (RIP), Mustang Sally Simpson, B-Rad Davis, Jeff Carey, Doyle Marshall, Brent Chalker, Greg Westfall and Jed Clampitt. I have learned a great deal from the people I've shared the stage with throughout the years.
After all these years, the hair still stands up on thje back of my neck when I "connect" with an audience. I still blush when someone tells me they "really like my stuff". Oh, and I still have a great weakness for women. beautiful women of all ages, shapes and backgrounds. Finally, I am flattered when folks ask me to play for them. There is no better place in the world to me than a smokey beer joint full of rednecks, bikers and crazy bar girls. That pretty much sums me up in a few words so, next time were hangin' out, having some "adult beverages".....
Tell me.... WHAT DO YOU WANNA HEAR????
