Why did you choose to become a musician?
Come on man, to get the ladies, LOL Like we all did, to start out with! LOL
What is your experience when you feel connected into the music?
Brother, you taking me back 50 years on this one, Music is in my blood line, from my Mother and Father!
Music is the thing that makes our hearts beat as one, White/Black/Red are yellow!
You feel a movement in your Soul that makes your body lose control.
What is your experience of when you don't feel connected to your music?
Then I'm not there or it's just a paid check!!!!! But my music, I'm sometimes shy about, but I do it!
Where does your inspiration comes from? What does it feel like?
My grooves go from Funk to love Ballads, It's some of the things that make me who and what I am, good or bad liked or disliked! From a summer's day to a winter night, a fallen star or a bright sunny day,
someone saying a line that hit's my heart. I feels like funk or is feels like love! My inspiration are cats my DAVID SANBORN, Maceo Parker, they were there first.
What is your experience while improvising? Does it relate to any spirituality you may practice in your life?
My improvising is a feeling from God, a feeling from my soul that hits my heart and my mind, but i am not a jazz player like a lot of greats, I like to call myself a Jerry Butler on Sax, I play simple, one note things that I believe hits your heart cause it hits mine. A lot of notes to me are too much for one to understand, but it's a lot of cats out here that I love to hear and see play doing great that what I don't do! But I'm just sayin!!!! We all have our own way we talk!
Where does your inspiration while composing come from? What is your experience of that inspiration like?
That is just life, you put a 1000 men in one room and they all dance to a different drummer, that that don't mean they don't like your song too! Songs come from the heart, the head, the news, the wind. I write and play what I think God puts on me! I also write from a feeling from my lady, good days, bad days, and great days, about feelings that all man dream of feeling and I have it in my hand!
Do you have any fun stories of inspirational moments to share?
Funny stories, I have a lot of stories, and a lot not funny! My 50 years of music has not all been sunshine and going to the bank everyday, but I tell you this. Go to school and learn about the dollar and how to hold it and build from it. Don't let this music thing fool you. I can count maybe 10 super stars in my life time, maybe! The Beatles, James Brown, Elvis, MJ, Prince, Ray Charles, Elton John, Little Richard, and the Stones, Whitney Houston and it may be a few more but understand what a Star is. A Star is some one that is known world wide and the bad part of that is, you may not give a shit about them until they lie, and then you want to say I loved their music and don't own one track!!!!!
Schools are full from people taking music and getting out cooking in McDonald's, LOL It's a bitch out here. I have been very very lucky and I hope it carries on with me, cause it can stop in a heart beat! I plan on writing a book of my little life, but that someone wants to know about my years in this game, but the few that will buy it will be Bless. It all ain't the way it looks! LOL
Music, Love and money, is you find any of it, you better know how to hold on to it!
