Most of you know me as a photographer but back in the day i played drums in bands with my dear friend John Berenzy. I started playing bass a bit over 3 years ago and have been writing and recording. I wrote this song about my street photography in NYC in the 70’s, what the city was like then and what it’s like now. Along with my photos I see it as a rock ‘n roll documentary. If you like it please share . . .
