Brooklyn Brats: 1980’s – w/Dane Rage (London). We played the Hollywood club scene along with Ratt, Quiet Riot, Motely Crue and others.

Pinheads: “Back to the Future” – You might remember me, I was the bass player in the high school audition band when Huey Lewis thought we were too loud. (My real gig was guitar coach).


Vanilla Fudge: 1990’s – w/Carmine Appice and Tim Bogert. This was a rockin’ reunion tour that took us all over the US.
