The cover shot says it all in a subtle way. All we see, hear, and feel here, are but brush-strokes by God. He's got a pretty impressive collection of brushes.


I hope this will answer a few questions any of you may have about me. I was born in Madrid, Spain on January, 20, 1965. My Father was in the USAF at the time. My Mother left him not long after I arrived and moved back to Texas. Iâve grown up in Texas and Louisiana. I now live in Victoria, Texas and work in the oilfield as an assistant manager on 24hr call. Iâve been lucky to remain with a very good company for 23 years.
Iâm a musician at heart. My first exposure to music was in church as a child. I sang in the choir or with my brothers on many occasions.
At about 13 years of age, I began to take interest in guitar. Iâm sure it had something to do with seeing JIMI Hendrix on T.V. That and Roy Clark on Hee Haw! My first axe was an acoustic from Navratil Music in Victoria. I learned a lot on it and took night jobs to pay for my first electric. In 1980 I bought a Gibson Sonex 180-custom. I still play it to this day. No guitar since can do what it can.
My first amp was a Sunn 150watt combo with a single 15â speaker. I played it for years until it finally blew up.
These days I spend as much time as I can recording my own music. I wish I could spend all of my time doing that.
I play guitar, keyboards, drum machine, bass (guitar thru a synth{s}), and sing (though my voice aint what it used to be). I write all my own lyrics and do all my own packaging of my cdr.

I was married for too many years to the wrong person and have been divorced now for not enough years. Eight years ago I met Glenda. She has become my muse. She cooks and cleans better than any one I know and together we raise her Daughter Daisy.
Glenda and I Have 8 long years together. Sheâs strong willed and also the main force driving me to have fun every day. Before she came my house was Spartan in accommodations. Now it glows with what sheâs done to almost every room. The studio however, is till all mine.
I play thru a crate stack and a peavey heritage 212 combo with a Marshall 4X12 cab extension. My rig puts out 560 watts. My floor pedal is a BOSS GT-6 that gives me unlimited tonal possibilities. My guitars are the Gibson sonex 180-custom, an Ibanez rgx with Floyd rose and locking nut, a Johnson fat-body electric jazz (loaned to KAMA Linden for a mini tour in Texas). (Sheâs from New York), and a BC RICH BICH. I also have a blue A.J. Reynolds acoustic. The keyboard I use is a standard GE model from Radio Shack. And my studio and drum machine are both from BOSS. I also use a headphone amp from Samson and AKG, Sennisheiser, and Sony headphones.
I have appeared on 2 volumes of https://www.tradebit.comIAS, COMPILATION series #âs 5 and 6. My three cds currently available thru are; NOBODY WINS!!!! ; SCREAMING WITH MY EYES ; and, DEATH AND DECAY.
The style of my music can be described as guitar rock/metal/progressive rock, but I try to be as expressive as I can and try many different ideas while I record.

My main website is Iâve had thousands of visitors from all over the world and the hits there have been on the rise from the beginning. If you visit, please sign my guestbook! I like to hear from visitors like you. Youâll also find many pics there of me, my art, my famillia, and my equipment. If you go for the tunes, there are samples from every one of my cds as well as a few entire songs. Donât be afraid of the buy button, itâs not binding. It just takes you to the cdbaby page where you can sample the same tunes. If you donât like mine, feel free to browse around all the genres, thereâs a lot of music there thatâs better than whatâs in the mainstream. Itâs unclouded by big money.
Well, thatâs me (in a walnut-shell).
âtil next time,

9/22/2006-(I'D LIKE TO SHARE SOME INSIGHTS) - September 22, 2006
This is just a paste of a letter from a good friend who recently did and interview with a filmaker. The film which percipitated the interview is called "ELECTRIC PURGATORY". It's a documentary about blacks in the Rock-N-Roll industry. The film looks to be an eye opener from the trailer I've seen. Anyway, I was asked for insights and this is what rolled off the top of my head.:
Easily done.
My mom would rather I do soft tunes all the time. I respect her for that and do oblige her often. But deep down inside there's a rage that burns like nothing else can to get out and express itself with volume, distortion, and the wildest flesh-melting tones I can come up with.
I sometimes catch a glimpse of the pioneers such as Charlie Christian, Clarence Brown, Django R., Jimi H., Segovia, this list has no end,,, and I soak up what they were doing back then and try to emulate it in some way. I don't think I'm ever successful, but nonetheless, I really try to feel it.
I've been called many names in my life. From across the spectrum, nigger, black mother fucker, spook, beaner, spic, this list goes on as well. My heritage spans many races, but my soul spans only the human race. I have little or no regard for the racist element on this earth. Racism comes from everywhere and leads to nowhere.
Most of my family listens to R&B, soul, funk, rap, etc. But a few listen to Metal, blues, and even classical. I listen to it all. I respect them and everyone else for whatever they listen to. Give me a choice and it will be something loud!
These days the music industry is shaking a bit from the threat of indie unsigned and unknowns getting exposure and eating away at the base of their profits. In desperation they now pull out the dirty pool trick of acts they've held back on. These artists are very talented and the music is new and for the most part unheard. I'm sure they would have been bigger long ago without the big companies.
I'm not Hendrix. I'm just me. An unknown artist who believes in what he feels inside and tries to share it. I don't expect fame or fortune but it would be nice to have a bathroom I can play baseball in.[;-)] the worst thing anyone can do as an artist is limit their "expression-form" to an ethnic narrow-mindedness. As for myself, I believe that just because light has a visible spectrum, that does not mean that that's all there is to the spectrum.
I will always be, LOUD! I will always be, PROUD! And, I will always be, PUSHING BACK THE CLOUDS!!!!
