"How's it hangin', brother Bob? What's it been? 30+ years?? Seems like yesterday we were banging out the copy on a Smith-Corona in the days when street rags were laid out by real men wielding X-Acto knives. If you're not on…"

"Indeed it is! How are you, Jacques? Lopilato has updated me on you occasionally. Not doing much writing lately. Wrote a novel, but it sucks. One of these days I'll fix it. Yeah, one of these days......."

About Me
I'm a music nerd. I've played continuously since I was in the fifth grade. I'm also a journalist out of the IU School of Journalism. I'm also an RN and I don't like it. I'm currently preparing a novel for publication, an extra-dimensional memoir called The Wish Machine. Some of you older folks might also remember that I was co-founder of the the 70's-era Primo Times weekly magazine. Some of our contributers included musical geniuses Mark Bingham, Bruce Anderson, Rich Stem, Bob Lucas, Bill Schwarz, and Dale Sophia. I would love to hear from people who were part of that great Bloomington era.
What bands are you or have you been in?
When I lived in Bloomington I played with Frankie Camaro in the Truckadellics, GoMango, and the Big Rigs. Played with John Barge, Ransom Haile, Ian Brewer, and Jim Manion in Swamp Rats, Deadbeats and The Wobblies. Also with Ricky Lee and Elija Pritchett in Like This and with Andy and Linda Cobine in The System. In 1993 I moved to Louisville where I have my own original band, Samurai Taylor. For several years I played bass for the exceptional, but now defunct, Mercy Academy. For seven years I played George in a Beatles tribute called Revolver. That was the only band I ever played in that made good money. I currently have a solo act centered on originals and augmented by British Invasion and feel-good oldies.
What city are you from?

I've reconnected with lots of old Indiana friend including Lopilato and it's fun to see the status updates and peek at the photo albums. Hope to see you on my next trip to Indiana! -- Merde

I hung out with Jim Bracken at the Ragin' Texans reunion a few weeks ago. He was remembering dressing room antics and asked about you.
