Music

I’ve been in a few bands over the years … written quite a few songs. I mentioned a few in the Monkees book. Anyway, I thought I’d share a few recordings. I’m the bassist on all of these. Please forgive the sound quality — we didn’t have the money to professionally record things back in the days before computers and digital recording.

THE NAUGHTY BITS played in Richmond, Virginia in the late 70s.
