Forty-seven years, 4 months, 3 weeks, 6 days, 3 hours, 41 minutes and 37 seconds. And I became a musician approximately 4 days after I was given a triangle by a one-eyed midget.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
Bach - And I believe it was on Mars. I went with my "Alley" buddies and my girlfriend of the time Tuesday Weld. I'll never forget Jimbo punching a security guard in the face just before downing a shoe-full of Southern Comfort.
What gear do you use?
I have a precision file and an antique barometer made in 1643 by Evangelista Torricelli.
Oh ... did you mean musical?
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Soupy Sales. I saw him on Ed Sullivan and was simply dumbstruck.
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
Rudy Vallee, a true musical giant.
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
One time my mom must have heard me, and I'm pretty sure a neighbor was passing by.
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
That would have to be PADDY ROBERTS: Songs for Gay Dogs. Who could ever be without this masterpiece?
