Back in my early 20s, I was practicing bass three hours a day, playing in a band with a drummer who practiced six hours a day and a guitarist who was one the "up and coming" lead guitar players of my home town. Plus, I was writing a song every day. I had this dream of "making it" without really knowing what "making it" meant. Stuff happened. Other priorities got in the way. I spent some time acting professionally, then went back to school, then had to work a few years to pay off the schooling. I didn't actually get around to *recording* my first CD until my *late* 20s. Now, in my late-thirties, I'm realizing that I'm too old to be an "up and coming" rock star. Not that I'd want to be. Not really. My tastes are too far outside the mainstream and I don't really want to change to fit the popular taste.
Currently, I'm all over Botswana doing musical production projects. When I have time to do my own music, I'll post a bit here.
