"Give My Regards To Broad Street" is better than "Let It Be!"  

I am now a contributor to CultureSonar, a great new arts website.  My first piece is about Paul McCartney's 1984 feature film "Give My Regards To Broad Street," which I've been obsessed with since its release.  I make the case that it's not as bad as its (many) detractors have claimed, and that it's in fact better than "Let It Be."  Enjoy!

"HEAL THE PAIN" tribute cover to George Michael 

The "Listen Without Prejudice Vol 1" album was part of the soundtrack of my freshman year of college; it also happens to be one of the finest pop records of the late 20th century.  Below is my tribute to one of my favorite tracks on the album, an under-appreciated gem that wouldn't be out of place on a Beatles LP (there I said it)!  Enjoy, and remember to appreciate your favorite artists while they still walk among us.

"LATE TO THE PARTY" in Bass Player Magazine!  

The October 2016 issue of Bass Player Magazine is on the stands, and it features a great review of my latest album "Late To The Party!"  BP calls it a "smart collection of pop songs," which is everything I aimed for when I was recording LTTP.  

I've been reading BP since its inception in 1988, and it is always a thrill to be acknowledged within the pages of this venerable publication.  Check out what all the fuss is about by downloading "Late To The Party" FOR FREE right here.  

Many thanx to all who have downloaded LTTP thus far and written in with words of encouragement.  There's plenty more where that came from.....

Be well
