What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today? There was all kinds of music in our home growing up and we loved it all. When the younger generation made its own sounds, that was it for me. Youth had a voice, it was the 1960's and we cherished hope. Mom and Dad encouraged my aptitude for stagecraft.. If I hadn't become a musician I surely would have gone into acting. The stage is my natural habitat.
