About This Project
At the age of 12 I was bitten by the entertainment bug. WOKY radio was blasting out songs like Little Willy And Love Will Keep Us Together every morning before school. The melodies swimming through my head all day (instead of schoolwork, whoops.) inspired me to write my first legitimate song – REASON FOR LIVING (sort of a fluffy, Davey Jonesish, kinda diddy.)
Eventually, after hearing bands like KISS & AEROSMITH, Hard Rock was the new addiction. It was cool & energetic & in those days it still had singing & melodies.
