About Me
I was raised in Kankakee, Ill. You know, the train pulls out of Kankakee. That's me. We lived two blocks from the tracks, and I can still remember those old steam engines letting off steam. I always felt a little out of place, don't know why, I just did. Still do as a matter of fact. I ran with the bad guys, Don't know why, I just did. We weren't really bad, we just thought we were. When all my friends were listening to Rock and Roll, I would sneak up to my room and listen to Johnny Cash. There was just something there that grabbed a part of my soul and said this is real stuff here son. In the 60s, I fried my brain on Dylan and Leonard Cohen. Dylan had a way of painting pictures with words and moving you emotionally with out saying a darn thing. Thanks Bob. Leonard Cohen was just out there talking about things most folks never dream of. Thanks Leonard. Any way, that's kind of where I come from, but I'm sure some day I will end up in Nashville. "Thank God for Nashville"
