We all try and have as much patience as we can, it’s human nature for those of us that actually care. It’s something that we try and instill in our children at very early ages, and we hope that they carry that lesson with them their entire lives. Fundamentally, I believe we never truly stop learning, no matter what age we are, we will continue to learn until the day we die. There are two specific instances of using...

Admittedly, this story has taken me a while to write, but one worth telling. Especially given the recent events in my life. It’s the story of a simple guy, who worked for another, not so simple guy. Now, I don’t want to put down, or belittle the simple man because in fact, he was the most honest guy you might meet. Some would say, “The guy can be an asshole, but I’d trust him with my life.” I guess with...

A while back ago, and actually almost every day, I talk to family and work colleagues. Men, women, the young and the old. Just starting out in life and those who are approaching the end of a wonderful career. Don’t ask me how it happened, (I’d only be guessing anyway!) but somehow after thirty-two years in the business the one thing I have in common with them all, I’m their Friend. And after speaking with them,...

This cut from the Letterman Show has a little back story I’d like to tell you about. When I was Harry Connick Jr.’s Stage Manager, there was a period of time that he was pursuing movie rolls (Independence Day, Hope Floats and Copycat to name a few.) while playing music only sporadically. While he was filming, he encouraged me to do other projects but be there for him when necessary. He had me on salary the entire time BTW!...
