GREETINGS from Ft. Myers, Florida where I've joined
up with my old bandmate from THE...VERS, drummer Jim Stein,
to be the guitarist and help launch a rock opera, written by
singer, songwriter, and keyboardist extraordinaire Tom Lapp, called
"Governments, religious fanatics, secret societies, huge corporations;
They all add up to the same thing; power and control over all people
by keeping them confused and in fear. It's time to take our world back!"
"Passion for Power" is the name of this new band, and besides myself on guitar,
it features Jim Stein on drums and Jim Keifer on bass as the rhythm section.
"Death of the Illuminati" author Tom Lapp is the lead singer and #1 keyboardist.
Hank Hinojosa is the 2nd keyboardist, and additional vocals are provided by
Linda Murray and Jil Koltz.
We are currently considering various options concerning production,
and are very anxious to get this show touring! In the meantime, the band has
gotten a hell of a lot more tight, showy, and exciting than these videos would indicate.
We are eagerly looking forward to shoot new video of the production that will be a
more accurate representation of the show, done entirely live in an appropriate venue.
I also need to mention that I have been playing duo with my most excellent
and talented partner, Tiffer "the Riffer" Folk, which we call "Tiff 'n' Zoid."
Besides being one of the sweetest people who ever lived,
Tiff is an extraordinarily gifted singer/songwriter and musician,
who has written and recorded 6 CD albums of her own songs.
I have been very privileged to have been performing with her!
Unfortunately, she has to move back to New Jersey for the summer,
so catch us together at Anthony's, or the Clubhouse
while you still can!
I am also resuming playing solo,
and hope to be performing soon in fun venues
all around the Ft. Myers/Beach/Cape Coral area!
Special thanks to my old buddy and THE...VERS bandmate
Charlie Kuchler of The Yard Dogs for his invaluable assistance!
- Please check the schedule for upcoming dates -
Not long ago, I did the lead guitar work for the soundtrack
of an independent film by Bruce Boldon, entitled "Tours of Doody."
