Born and raised in NYC...Brooklyn. "Whuh? Yis got a PROBLEM wid dat?!" Built my first radio station in high school by staging hundreds of bake sales to raise money to buy equipment.
Went to NYU - got my first job WHILE I was at NYU Film School - "Cousin Ken" on "XL Country" in New Jersey at the ripe old age of 19.
Been on the air ever since. Acting and writing career continued: Small parts in various movies and TV shows - but got a few featured parts, like last year's season opener on "Law And Order, C.I."
I've also written and starred in a couple of those low-budget T&A movies, like "The Naked Detective." - don't worry gang - I keep my clothes ON! I'm the comic relief!
Was on the Golf Channel's "Total Golf Makeover" a couple of season's ago in Orlando...I'm now a 12 handicap, thanks to Moe Norman's Natural Golf method!
Married, with a family - that would be my dog, Brak, a Border Collie/Bernese Mountain Dog mix, and our cat, Baldrick, who rules the world (the world just doesn't realize it yet).
Favorite Concert? Seeing "The Wall," Roger Water's epic, live in Berlin, after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Simply one of the greatest events I have ever been part of in my life...
Looking forward to lots of golf during the day, and rock and roll all night at BIG 1059!
Sad loss for rock down here with the passing of Doors keyboard man Ray Manzarek - but there isn't a doubt in my mind that he and Jim are now getting into trouble writing new songs together!
Here is "Light My Fire" from The Hollywood Bowl - a rock video directed by Ray...
At least the sets are still there - in the Moroccan desert!
So, hundreds of years from now, when archaeologists stumble across this stuff, I wonder what crazy stories they'll come-up with to explain it. Which ALSO makes me re-think "Stonehenge." Maybe it's not the ancient holy Druid hookie-dookie everybody thinks it was. Maybe, if we could go back in time and ask a Druid what's the deal with the big rocks, he would honestly say: "Ahh, we were just screwin' around. Why? They're not still there, are they? Jeez. Sorry!"
an amazing mash-up....IMAGINE!
Thanks to Arnie for sharing the ULTIMATE golf-moron video low-light reel!
The first Canadian to walk in space, who also was the first Canadian to command the International Space Station, is now the first human to shoot a music video in space on his last day on the job. This also makes him the first Canadian space music video commander producer!
