Rediscovered Poetic Justice Tunes

I just mixed and mastered some old Poetic Justice tunes that I found when cleaning up my studio. If I recall, we had intended to lay down the drum tracks to some songs we were working on, then go back in and record guitar, bass and vocals. We got the drum tracks down, but the […]

Band Practice #2

I don’t want to get into the habit of writing about band practice, but I met with the guys in Largo for the second time last night. If nothing else, it’s worth mentioning because I think #2 went better than #1. We did easier songs, I didn’t have a cold, and I was a lot […]

Roller

1982-1984 I was light-man for Roller. I never played in the band. But it was my first experience with Rock & Roll. My first time on the road. Hotels. Clubs. Traveling. Drinking. Drugs. Starvation. Paying dues. All that good stuff. I was going to add women to that list. But the women didn’t notice the […]
