Drums / Percussion
Chris was caught up in the rock music explosion that took place in the mid-sixties, and was part of a garage band group called “The Other” in the Alexandria, Virginia area, until his family had to move due to a change in his father’s military assignment. Since then, there has not been a time when some popular song of the day wasn’t going through his head, and his fingers or feet were not tapping out the drum rhythm.
FAVORITE ARTIST: Elton John (also Michael McDonald, Harry Chapin, Dan Fogelberg, Jim Croce, Paul Simon…).
FAVORITE GROUP: The Moody Blues (also Chicago, The Beatles, The Guess Who, The Byrds, Bel Canto, Santana, Rondo Veneziano…).
FAVORITE SONG: “Beginnings” by Chicago (“You Make Me So Very Happy” by Blood, Sweat and Tears, would come in second); "A Million Miles Away" by the Plimsouls or "Soul Sacrifice" by Santana (see Woodstock) to really get you going!
FAVORITE INSTRUMENT: own-cherry red Fender Stratocaster guitar and Gretsch Renown 57 and Tama Cocktail Jam drum sets.
HOBBIES: photography, painting and crafts, reading.
