Welcome to my world

warped though it may be.....


Me doin' my thing

    My main hobby and therapy - I have a band! We're called Blue State - we even have our own web site... and our new album, "Duracool" is available for sale on CDBaby and iTunes....  
    The band, above, at The Last Day Saloon: l-r: Tom DeFiglio (drums), me (lost in song), Pat Tinling (bass) , Vince Caminiti (guitar) and George Landreth (keys.) Here's another YouTube video of the band at The Tradewinds:  
Struck By Lightning
