I have talked a lot about my music influences and in fact on my recent trip to Denver I spent well over an hour in the Guitar Center and found an acoustic bass that I have to have and have been leaving little hints for my wife Michele, all week long. Which brings me to my favorite […]

Today is National Top Gun Day. No, I am not making this up… Twenty five years ago today was the day that one of the coolest movies in the history of film hit theaters everywhere! It was Top Gun. I remember I was living in Woodbridge, Virginia, a sleepy bedroom community off the beltway near […]
