Profile Information

About Me:
Just another guitar player...
I've been playing guitar for more than fifty years, you'd think I'd be better at it by now. I started playing in bands in my very early teens and have been at it ever since. I haven't made any big money or gained any prominence (except in my own mind) but I've loved every minute and still do to this day.
Favorite Blues Artists and Bands (Please list at least a few...we use this question to weed out spammers)
I have too many favorites to name them all and if you're hangin' around here you probably know all the big names ...okay I'll name some anyway, all of the many Kings especially Albert and Freddie, Ike Turner, Herb Sadler, Johnny Winter, Eric Clapton, Rory Gallagher, early Leslie West, Duane Allman, Richard Thompson, this is too much work, there are too many...we're fortunate. The following list includes guys that are for the most part, local DC area players that I've followed over the years. They are among the finest I've ever heard and most haven't gotten the attention they should have. Some have gained national notoriety, others have not. Roy Buchanon, Danny Gatton, Tom Principato, Evan Johns, Jimmy Thackery, Bob Hume, Bruce Middle, Brinson "Doc" Reed and Larry Orf come to mind immediately and there are many others I've heard over the years around town. I've been fortunate to have been around to hear these guys and privileged to play with a few and if anything rubbed off on me I'm better for it.
Are you a:

New developments....

In the last year or so, some things have changed. My former band The Deacons broke up after a pretty good run. I've heard recently that The Deacons are re-forming with a new line-up...but I've moved on. I wish 'em luck. Fortunately for me, during the last few months of my tenure with The Deacons I helped form another band called OMG (Old Men with Guitars) which I've been with for a bit over a year now. We're two guitars, bass and drums and play mostly covers. These guys (Larry Orf - Guitar/Vocals, Andy Margileth - Bass/Vocals and Dennis Hash - Drums ) are what I consider to be high end players and I hope to get some recorded material on here soon. If you're in the Northern Virginia/Washington DC/Maryland area please keep an eye out and try to catch a show somewhere. Check us out on Facebook at:

Hi Cliff, thanx for kind words. DC area, uh? Man, there must be some kinda magic over there... Buchanan has been a BIG influence on my playing, i might upload a version of Hey Joe wich is some kind of dedication to his memory... I met Tom Principato once. Great player and a warm and friendly person... Thanx again,
keep in touch,
