I guess I'm a little surprised to have made it to 60 in one piece and still feeling fairly young. I've been a musician all my life and continue to get paid to be a complete jack-ass in front of an audience. I'm amazed!
I'm a solo act now and too old and independent to be in bands anymore. They drive me nuts. Don't need them. And they certainly don't need me. I love performing by myself. No headaches.
I never turn down an opportunity to perform at any function that promotes peace and justice. Or really any other good cause, for that matter. Over the years I've done fundraisers for the Democratic Party, ACLU, Amnesty International,Veterans for Peace, Vietnam Veterans against the War and many, many more. And, yes, I'm bragging. Its something I've always been very proud of doing and happy I could create money for these groups from my small talent. I still do all the songs from the peace movement of long ago.
I finally escaped Los Angeles after 25 years there. In 2003 Lisa and I moved to the beautiful Oregon coast where we live in a house I built near the beach in Bandon, OR. I must travel a bit to perform but I'm mostly retired anyway.
I don't drink or take any recreational drugs anymore and haven't for many years. But I have no objection to those around me drinking. Doesn't bother me a bit. But, ya know, its funny. I still like to hang out in bars and nightclubs even though I don't drink. I guess because I still work in them so much.
Rock and Roll, classical music, Opera, Contemporary fiction, R&B, my music. I am currently a member of Veterans For Peace and previously a member of Vietnam Veterans Against the War and ACLU. I would like to be a member of Greenpeace, The Rollings Stones and the United States Senate, but I don't have time.
Reading, mostly fiction.
