Welcome to my blog! I’m excited to say that I’m in the process of publishing The Lizard Stays in the Cage, a memoir of my twenty-five crazy years in the arts, specifically music, but it’s more than that; it’s a vast collection of stories and anecdotes, quotes, pop cultural observations, bits of advice to aspiring artists, just a tad of trash talking, a running chronicle of my time on the road, and an all-encompassing, sometimes self-deprecating, other times self-congratulatory recap of a colorful life as an artist. Should you decide to procure a copy, I promise the following: laughs, insights, scandalous behavior by a variety of individuals, victories, defeats, juicy name-dropping, lessons learned the hard way, more laughs, and a candid glimpse of a life in the arts. Lizard has been a long time in the making, as many of you know, so I sincerely hope you’ll read it and share your thoughts and observations. Also, I hope the book generates many future discussions about art, culture, and life itself.
