Author's Bio

I was born in 1947
North of hell and south of heaven
About that time the sun went down
On San Francisco, my home town
I stuck my head out to see what’s cookin
But it was dark I should have crawled back in

...

Yeah there’s more to this story as I know you’ve thought
But this is just about as far as I’ve got
Winter come around I’m gonna add a verse --
You know it can’t get too much worse…
So stay tuned folks, you’ve got nothing to lose
You’ve been listening to those Talking Disillusion Blues.
