I was born in a small town in central Louisiana back in the days when you didn't have to lock your doors, gas was about .30 cents a gallon and a 12 year old could buy a pack of smokes for a quarter, and when you got out of line you got a ass whoopin' not only from your mom but the neighbor's mom and the maid ah! the good old days. About that time my older brother played some records for me one was'' Disraeli Gears'' the other'' Are you Experienced'' and also about that time I met Richard Courtney and I haven't been the same since. Richard and I were going to replicate the sounds we heard on those records come hell or high water and guitar was to become my passion for the next 42 years. Guitarist such as Duane Allman, Lowell George, Robben Ford, Cornell Dupree, Leo Nocentili and Carlos Santana would be my influences in the '70s, in the later years way too many to mention. I guess the good thing about getting older is the time between humiliation and inspiration gets a lot shorter. Anyway the songs I have posted are small sample of the work I have done with Richard over the years, some were recorded in Baton Rouge in 1997 the others at Richards studio in Nashville in 2008. Richard engineered, played drums and bass, Monty La Maze and Jim Cliff also played bass on the Baton Rouge session that was released in 2001 titled'' My Backyard'' on Shadow Puppet Music label. The Nashville session is still a work in progress that we hope to finish soon...I've been living in the Pacific Northwest for the last 26 years and I have the pleasure and honor to play with some wonderful and talented musicians that inspire me to no end......enjoy. dk
