And while I played many well know groups (Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, Yes, The Who, Zeppelin, etc.) - I followed in the … Continue reading How to be the DJ of your own Life

While this might sound fantastic (and there are definitely elements that are) - my time from take off to arrival back home is often at the mercy of others. For instance, I go to China every year for a conference. It … Continue reading My Road Warrior Workout – at least one of them!
