1969

1969

Moon landings and Woodstock. Great social change.

High school to college. Draft cards.

A few days spent in the hospital, pondering my own mortality.

Bonding with a group of friends who would be with me for a lifetime.

And finding the music… some of the greatest music ever. MY MUSIC!

But in 1969 there was an earthquake event that reverberates in me to this day.

In the spring of 1969, I was asked by a local rock band to fill in for a drummer friend of mine who had injured his hand. And so, I played my first ever gig, drumming and singing with the band. I recall that my vocals on a rendition of Hey Jude went down particularly well. It was wonderful, joyful…spectacular!

On that fateful day, my life changed forever. I didn’t know it right then. It would take a while to understand that this had been my destiny all along. Music had always been a part of my life. Starting in 1969, it would become my life’s passion.

So, thank you, 1969!

50 Years On!
