One day, some years ago, I was standing on the corner of 8th Avenue and 38th Street in New York City talking with Brian Connie. He was one of the many performing songwriter-musicians that I was hired to work with at the time. We had just finished practicing in “the music building,” a decrepit low-rent rehearsal loft space just south of 42nd Street. (This was during the bad old pre-Disney days of Times Square.)
We were talking about why we do what we do. Brian said, “It was the Beatles man! After I saw them, that was it! That’s all I ever wanted to do.” Not one to pass up a great song title, I walked back home to my apartment on 101st and West End and wrote a song: “All I Ever Wanted to Do”. They say write what you know… That was a long time ago and here I am. Still loving what I do.

My deepest thanks and love to my creative partner Mary Ellen for helping to make it happen. And let me give a very special shout out to web guru Lydia Hutchinson for her advice and talent.
