One Night – quite some time ago!

“Steve, so many memories about our youth. One especially stands out in my memory is a night, I don’t remember why or how, we were on a back country road and we just stopped on the side of the road. You had your guitar and just jumped out and started playing and singing. If I’m remembering correctly, it must have been around 2 or 3 in the morning, but you just jammed for about 10 minutes, then jumped back in the van and we continued on. *(Jerry McWilliams)

Thanks Jerry – glad you sent that!

Yes, it’s TRUE – don’t know why –

But it is….

You really just need to learn how to PLAY the Guitar!

It doesn’t hurt to write a book too:

“The Truth about the Music Business’

My First Gig!

I remember this like it was yesterday!

I remember wanting to get a good guitar – not just any guitar – a really good guitar and I had my eye on a 76 Les Paul – Wine Red!

There was NO way to get that guitar but to get a job – making minimum wage – and that was the LAST time I would ever have to do that!  But I had to work from 4:00 to 10:0o p.m. 3 nights week and from 4:00 to like 3:00 a.m. at a place that was GREASY to say the least – in fact, I kept my “branded” apron I had to wear – as that job was HUMILIATING!  But I was just old enough to drive but NOT really old enough to work – but I would do ANYTHING for that Guitar – and I finally bought it – within 6 months – my first Band “FOREVER” was formed and we had our FIRST GIG – Sat Sept 22, 1977 – and we made MORE MONEY then – than most bands out there are making per night and that’s a LONG TIME AGO – that was it – I was HOOKED and I never went back…

I was me, Kevin Ivey on Guitar, Andy Gehman on Guitar, Sid Powers on Drums, Doug Craft on Bass and Frank Lacy on Keys – well a synth that he had built from Scratch – not much of a light show – but I had a MILK CARTON with a strobe underneath it – so I could stand up on it and play lead!  Kind of funny in retrospect but I l0ved every minute of it – and to think we made MORE in that one night than we could have made in WEEKS of working a BS JOB – that was all I needed – wasn’t long after that – that I started to play Country Clubs and then went off to college – only to come back to OPEN for Paul Davis at our largest Theater in my home town – so those HOURS of practice paid off! –

It’s a shame that cover charge hasn’t changed since then – so needless to say starting out now it harder than it was back then – but still to me – it was ALL WORTH THE JOURNEY!

This may lead to yet another books – as the stories I can tell – just not sure that I want to release something like THAT under my own name –

But we’ll see how it goes, just picking content right now – and getting this site OUT of the WAY – as this is just my HOBBY as it were – but my one TRUE PASSION!
