Lead Guitar and Vocals
My love for the music of the Grateful Dead inspired me to play guitar when I was in high school. In 1979, my good friend Jonathan Spitz handed me a beat up nylon string acoustic and showed me a few chords and I haven’t stopped playing since. I have been very lucky over the years to find great friends to play music with. My Far Rockaway, NY high school buddies, my SUNY Albany college buddies (www.deadstein.com), and then to meeting Bails, Gary, Joe, Jen and Rich all of whom who share my love for the jam band style of music and have become great friends.
I crave the sound of a single coil pick-up fed into an old Fender Twin Reverb amp.
