- About me:
- Long time Zappa fan and friend. I was the person that was totally responsible for introducing Frank to Jack KIrby, with whom I created an Italian supernatural superhero, Noctvrnvs. Met Alice Cooper and Captain Beefheart (Don Van Vliet and his wife Jan). Also friend of music greats Mark Volman, Lauren Wood and Jerry Lawson of The Persuasions. I've become an LA area karaoke singer after being the nickname "Magic Mic" by BACKSTAGE's legendary KJ Shane. I may be Elvis but he's the Colonel! I love 80 music (Prince, Elvis Costello, New Order, et. al.) I have been truly blessed when it comes to my love of music. I am a noted comic book scholar (Google me for details) and once taught a class on comic books at Loyola Marymount University, where I've worked for some 26 years in the Media department of their library. Majored in TV production at Boston's the now defunct Grahmn Junior College with Marc Summers (DOUBLE DARE, UNWRAPPED) and Alex Paen (ANIMAL RESCUE, MISSING). Worked at WKTV and WCIX. Also had Kermit Schafer (Blooper concept creator) as a mentor and appear on one of his Pardon My Blooper albums doing a reinactment of a locker room blooper.
