A Biography of a Musician

It all Started in 1964 - I saw The Beatles - A sound like no one has ever heard before. I wanted to be a musician. I worked hard for my first instrument ( Drums)  Drove my parents crazy, so I started playing guitar and then bass guitar and just before I was going into the 7th grade in I met some other  young musicians we formed a group call " Synthetic Flesh"  Now that's a cool name! Strange but cool!
