7Any young standout musicians from Marin we should be looking for? Matt Jaffe, Kerry Branden
and Lena Culhane are just a few.
8Favorite lyric (of the moment)? “The monkey’s off my back, but the circus is still in town” —
from my new CD Six String Man.
9Who is your muse? My cat Max and my wife, Kelli.
10You’ve spent time on Maui? Loved it; I watched the sun rise on Christmas day 1970
naked to the world, like the rest of my hippie friends
on Makena Beach, and when I needed to buy a car to
get to the other side of the island, I gave some guy $50
and a buck knife for a blue, big-finned Chevy Impala.
11What is your creed? Can I have two? “Leap and a net will appear” and “Don’t be afraid to
be a beginner — embrace it.”
12Who gave you the confidence to leap? My family, particularly my gay Uncle Jack —
his boyfriend was Grace Kelly’s uncle. He lived in
Positano, Italy, and was a published writer. Also my
mom, who drove me to my first gigs.
13What is the key to teaching guitar? Physically, it’s a challenge. To get your hand
around a guitar neck isn’t easy, especially for kids, so
I try to make it fun. I show them a few cool tunes and
some tricks of the trade and then they can go on from
there. I like to say those that can do, can also teach
and pass on their knowledge. I can’t think of a better
vocation than sharing your love of music. M
