The meaning of ‘success’ has changed over the years. When will the new record be a success?


When I get some reviews and airplay ….sales would be nice too.


Can you still recall the moment music became important to you? What happened?


Music was in my home from day one. My dad loved Easy Listening and had thousands of records ( I got ‘em now) 78’s Sammy Kaye, Russ Morgan, and Big Band stuff and Jackie Gleason.

My older brother ..Hendrix and Beatles etc.

The first time I saw Live music was in my neighborhood in Dorchester was the “moment”.

Frankie Blandino played outside at a neighborhood church. I remember them playing “Ohio” by CSNY, Woodstock was a year or so before, I DUG IT.


Which is the song you wish you had written every time you hear it? And why?


Wichita Lineman …cuz it is the best


If you could tour the world with 2 other bands, who would you ask to join?


Miss Chain and The Broken Heels and Eric Martin



Every family birthday, same story. Again, you have to explain what kind of band you are in. What’s the story this time for aunt Jenny and uncle Clive?


Aunt Jenny, I was in a Punk Rock Band in the ’70s but I am not 18 years old anymore and I no longer have teenage worries or ignorance. I am 59 and have new worries and am a little less ignorant.

Uncle Clive, you will dig it. Kinda 60’s Pop and melancholy but with a Boston Rock background.
