Good question! I am the former drummer/multi-instrumentalist of the 1970's band Golden Wings from Macomb, Illinois, USA. I went solo in 1996, releasing my CD album Uncharted Currents in 2008. I was born on the banks of the Mississippi River, and grew up in the small midwestren town of Dallas City, Illinois. Myself and Lisa, my wife of 40 years, live a mostly hermitical and simple life in the Appalachian Mountains of Western North Carolina in a modified 5th wheel RV. I am for the underdog, the poor, and people who don't fit society's mold. I am for organic living, gardening and farming. I am for open source software and against big and corrupt government and it's officals. I am also against big business and corporations who rule, and ruin, the Earth.
