I just returned from a trip to my home town Hannover, "rock capital of Germany", and I reconnected with some former band mates from almost 40 years ago with whom I had my first recording experiences back in the '70s. Not only was our reunion a superb celebration of friendship- it was a celebration of a dream that we share to this day- to be a musician! What a dream, and how touching it was for me to be reminded where it all started...
Little did I know that playing with the group 'Sunset' in 1979 prepared me for a much, much bigger step just a few years later- to move to America, be a full time musician, and play (for my first gig in the US) on Sunset Blvd at the famed Whisky a Go Go. My tiny little dream had expanded into a really big one and had cast me onto a breathtaking trajectory that continues to amaze me to this day.
So I guess my point is that tiny dreams can turn into big ones just like that. As I continue to dream up my next chapter I hope that you will take time to dream up yours- and if it involves music, perhaps we can even share in it...
