I was born in Brooklyn, New York in the mid 1950s, the very same week that a rock’n'roll song would be the first of its kind to rise to the top of the pop charts in America. It was a new form of music this rock’n'roll, a fad that would come and go in a year, but I would connect and create in my life around the rock’n'roll songs I would hear. Now, fifty years on, I have lived a good part of my life, I have set out what I’ve wanted to say in a book about what I have learned, what I have kept, and what I have passed on the way.
Music was the river, my connection to friends with whom I shared my time. Born in the age of the electric guitar, it was the sound of our age defined. I’ve gathered those memories around me and looking at what I have found, there is a stream connecting my story, I’ve lived a rock’n'roll dream around sound.
I’ve been a musician, a songwriter, a record producer, and I’ve co-owned an indie rock label, but I will always be best remembered for the rock clubs that I created and co-owned in New York: Sanctuary, Mission, and Luna Lounge.

If you like what you read, please order your copy of Wake Me When It’s Over. It’s not available in stores, this is my website and although you can find my book where books are sold on the web, the price here, just $15 for soft cover (plus shipping) or $7 for digital, is much less than anywhere else in the world.
