Huge egos, and politics are not my thing. Jimi Hendrix,and Stevie Ray Vaughn are some of my biggest inspirations for this album,and my music. But, as far as the combination of the vocals and guitar, it sounds more similar to a early BOB DYLAN album, or a JOHN FOGERTY solo album??? I consider myself a lead guitarist. I've played in lots of bands. Lead guitar is my true love. Ranging from ROCK, to HEAVY METAL, mostly in bands, tho I'm the lead guitarist.. Rythem guitar, and singing is hard work. But, i mostly having to play, both parts at once. I have worked hard to become the best guitarist possibly.,'JULIE' is a song on this album that is probably most prized by my fans. But personally, I value the songs 'ENERGAL BLUES', and 'SUMMERS ALMOST OVER', and think they are potential hits ??? When I compose original works, I try to consider how to make it the most positive, and uplifting towards my audience. I also have a few country, and spiritual songs, on this album and one jazz number: CHICAGO... I PRAY FOR WORLD PEACE, and that LOVE, will FILL the WORLD, with MUSIC !!!
