current borders or are you happy where it is?

lyrics looking for a new twist . . .

music business?

Answer:  Dewey Martin from the Buffalo Springfield pulled me
into a band he was playing in with Randy Meisner from the Eagles, and Poco,
plus Rick Roberts from a band called Firefall. It was a hits package and we had
some really good times. Each night when Randy would sing Take It To The Limit
it was beyond my dreams. I remembered buying One Of These Nights as a
kid, so becoming a fellow
bandmate, and friend
was so great.

Lamitschka:  Before you became a star, were your friends and
family supportive or was it a struggle?

had a support networkenco. encouraging friends and family. I’ve also had, and
experienced the opposite.

incredible lyric.

Answer:  Life in general. Each and everyday I wake up I want
to work on music.

Lamitschka:  What does it take to be a music icon?

Answer:  Well,let’s hope I’m that at some point in my life. But the answer
I’ll give: Practice, practice, practice . . .

Lamitschka:  What’s unique about you that will differentiate
you from other artists?

Answer: I am an accomplished guitarist, in addition to
writing my songs. I spent the better part of 30 years practicing the guitar,
still do . . .

business?
