    Shades of Gray

    Shades of Gray

    As a recording artist, I found myself between a rock and a hard place, should I address today's racial topic? How could I not, as an African American man, I simply had to, I did not want to look at it like everyone else, I noticed something different, so I decided to speak to both sides of the fence. 

    My point of view is passionate, blunt, and expressed using strong language, not more normal, it's how I see race and humanity in this country and the world, you might not share my views and that's ok.

    Reflections

    Reflections

    In spring 1976, I set out to become a bass player and recording artist. It was a decision I made just weeks after my little brother tragically lost his life.

    I never once thought it would take me over four decades to achieve my goal! And while achieving it was joyous and celebratory, as it was unfolding in realtime, the reality of what I had accomplished didn't hit me until twenty-four hours later, when I emotionally broke down!

    RAH

    RAH

    As a bass player, my job is to stay locked in with the clock, the drummer, and to put the "bottom" in the song. When I think of the drummers I've played, with and, famous drummers I admire like Buddy Rich, Billy Cobham, Steve Gadd, and many more, one of the badest drummers is RAH. We've been close friends for over twenty years! Introducing you to RAH and his music has me so "gassed up." He released his latest album, "Gods Music" and you're about to experience one of the badest drummers ever!

Fun!Fun!Fun!

I love this podcast. Brings back so many memories of my childhood. And all done through the lens of music. Some stories are poignant, some sad, some hilarious- but all so relatable. I look forward to each episode!
