No question here. Just expressing my gratitude for some heart felt songs. Your albums are a reprieve from this crazy and confusing world.

In your bio it said you grew up in South Berwick, Me. I was a reporter for The Sanford News from 82-83 and lived in Sanford. Did you start playing in that area?

I graduated from Marshwood High School in '82. My first band, The Magic Rats, played a couple of school assemblies and house parties in '81 - '82. I joined a Rochester-based bar band called The Classifieds just before graduating, and we played local venues like The Palace in Berwick, the Spartan Lounge in Dover, and the Victory Club in Rochester in '82 - '83.

I don't know, Tony. Mrs Cleaves has dibs on that one tonight. I'll ask her if she minds sharing
