Hello everyone and thank you for your Patron support!

I started playing guitar at age 9. My first professional band was age 12. By age nineteen I was touring and playing club venues, living in San Diego.

I next joined a Pasadena band "Headwinds" in 1973. We opened for Van Halen at the Pasadena Exhibition Center numerous times, traveled throughout the western states, then got a publishing/development deal with Screen Gems EMI in 1978.

In 1980 Myself and Mark Poynter from Headwinds started "Dealer" with bassist Glen Bassett, and Drummer Tommy Lee. Prior to Motley Crue, Tommy had just left 'Suite 19" with Greg Leon, then joined 'Dealer'. We performed at The Starwood in Hollywood, and The Rock Palace on the Colorado River. Tommy's Dad would keep our band truck running to make it there and back. I met Tommy Lee's drum coach Gary Holland backstage at The Starwood warming Tommy up. Gary Holland would later be my drummer in "Britton" in 1985 through 1989. I also met Will Boyett, Hollywood photographer who I work with today.

Many positives came from Dealer. After 'Dealer', Tommy left for Motley Crue, I started a band "Romeo" with drummer Kevin Berry, Bassist James Stone and Lead guitarist Mike Wolf who would soon join Carmen Apice's band "King Cobra" and Romeo got Randy Rhode's top student Chet Thompson on lead guitar. We were ready for battle.Romeo did a high school tour, played the Hollywood strip, tore San Diego County up with promoter Janet Carter, and released a 3 song picture disc-distributed worldwide.

I then started "Britton" in 1985 with drummer Gary Holland, and by 1988 we went national; getting heavy rotation on KNAC, Long Beach with 52 other reporting radio stations coast to coast. Britton also had songs in movie and TV soundtracks.

I continued touring through the inter-mountain west as 'Britton' with the help of Gary Michael's KRAR 'KROCK' SLC (now the G-Man-The Arrow 103.5 Salt Lake). In 2000 I moved back to L.A. to concentrate on songwriting, recording, solo appearances, producing, and sharing my life experiences with awesome, supporting friends and fans that make me the sum total of who I am today.

And living the embodiment of my life's biggest lesson: "the only constant in life is change".
