I retired in 2005 after 37 years as a suburban Chicago police officer. I met my late wife Arnette while playing in the band. She passed away in 2002. We have two children Nikki and Matt. I enjoy motorcycling and getting together with the guys and jamming just for kicks.
The band played some pretty good music and we enjoyed each otherís talents through the years. I've had countless good experiences with the band and I think we all agree that we had the greatest fans in the world, (our families). We became the best of friends and although Craig is my brother I think we all think of each other as brothers. We had three different female vocalists through the years and all three were very talented.
One last thing: I'd like to thank everyone who hired us through the years. You are the ones responsible for keeping us together as long as we have. (You know who you are!) I only hope you have the happy memories we share.
Since our website was launched in 2007, I've had the opportunity to get together with several drummers from my high school days namely, Lee Graziano, drummer of The American Breed, Billy Herman, Ross Salomone, Danny Seraphine former drummer of Chicago and current drummer/founder of CTA (California Transit Authority). It has been fantastic to be able to see these guys doing well and to see some of them still performing today. I intend to stay in touch as long as possible with these fabulous drummers.
