During my earlier years I played with Illinois Speed Press (with Paul Cotton) and did several demo sessions for Four Star Brad. Then I hooked up with Jim Price and did Kids Nowadays Ain't Got No Shame (with Nicky Hopkins, Jim Keltner and Klaus Voorman), and Sundegos' Traveling Orchestra.
While with Jim Price I met and recorded with Harry Nilsson: Nilsson Schmilsson and Son of Schmilsson. I also played with B.B. King on B.B. King In London (with Stevie Winwood, Gary Wright). I also play on Sky(Doug Feiger of the Knack)'s Sailor's Delight and Bobby Key's self-titled album (featured Felix Pappalardi, Leslie West, Carl Radle, Corky Laing).
I also recorded an album with Bill Wyman for John Walker. (John is also credited here as producer for his work with Chris Jagger).
After all this I moved back to Billings, Montana and formed a group called Smokin' Gun. Since then I have done personal demos for myself and friends, such as Greg Lucas and Kostas Lasarides.
