Embarrassing Moment

Too many to mention, but one time I just moved to Miami and joined a newly formed Disco band (it was 1978), calle "Primo". The bass players wife made our band outfits, They were white bell bottom pants with a silver sparkly V-neck Shirt. (I do have a picture). We got booked in San Jose Costa Rica in 1979 for the Xmas week. After we went on local TV to promote our gigs for that week, we went to a local Pub and I met up with some fun people who did not speak any English but we had fun anyway singing Spanish Xmas Carols. After many drinks, We all left and they took me to a bus stop so I can get a ride back to my hotel, I stood there for about an hour dressed in my funny outfit and a bunch of rough locals were starting to make fun of me, this big tall goofy white guy dressed in the show biz costume, I didn't speak any Spanish so I couldn't answer any of their questions. I was getting a little worried but nothing happened. I was so glad when the bus came. The week turned out great,

My Instrument

I have over 60 guitars in my collection, 6 Fender Custom Shop Stratocasters and Telecasters. My 65 Strat I've he'd since I was 15 years old, I have a Gibson Custom Shop 1983 Les Paul, A Larry Carlton signature Gibson ES-335, An Ovation Custom Elite Thinline, about 8 Bass Guitars, some that I've built rom Warmoth Necks and Bodies, A Rainsong Carbon Fiber Black Ice and the rest are mainly Strats and Tele's. I have my own small home recording studio and record my own backing tracks and demo's for my duo. I play bass,drums, a little keyboards and some vocals.
