| Each of my records has a different focus, a different theme.
| To me, all war is failure for humanity, though it often is a bounty for commerce.

| At the time I attempted to purchase the rights back for the 3 Homestead records, but the owner demanded an outrageous sum in the neighborhood of $10,000, about 10 times more money than I could get my hands on at the time.
| I have always abhorred the business end of music.
| I also spend a lot of time on political blogs, and music blogs getting things for my radio show.
| I probably had the most fun recording For Richer For Poorer in Nashville.
| Cleveland is the place I grew up and lived much of my adult life, so it will always be a part of my soul.
| I followed most of the 80's bands into the 90's as most of those folks who hadn't moved away were all still active. However, there was a point when I lost track of the new bands coming up.

| You can't get away from who you are I guess.
| I pretty much ignored politics all through my 20's and 30's... I had other things on my mind... the band, finding a meaningful relationship, getting enough money to eat and pay the rent.
| In my mid 30's, after a decade or so of giving full time to the music thing and finding myself with about $10 in the bank and no assets other than my musical equipment, I realized I needed to get serious about making a living.
| I am pretty detached from the local music crowd though.
