Silverhead in Tokyo? Yes, it did happen, and it was amazing!!! You folks were wonderful and we canít thank you enough for your hospitality and enthusiasm. Check out the Official Silverhead Facebook Page for great pics and memories of the event of our lifetimes.
Dec 6, 2011 After 40 years, Silverhead is getting back together to do a couple of shows in Tokyo next April. Itís hard to believe that after all this time, all it took was a few of phone calls. Michael, Rod and Nigel have gotten together at Rookieís place near L.A. to start things rolling. Robbie and I will be joining them in Tokyo for rehearsals before the show. Itís going to be great to see the guys and rock out again. I feel like a kid thinking about it and Iím finding it hard to wait. Tetsuya Nakatani of Vinyl Records is putting on two shows at the Shimokitazawa Garden on April 20 & 21. You can get all the details on our Official FaceBook Page. Stop by, Like the page, say hi, share your memories, pics, ask questions....See you there!!! And stop by my gallery page, Iíve got some Silverhead pics there too.

Dec 7,2009 Wow, sorry about not posting much these last few months. Iíve been relying on the blog for most things. The 2009 tour is over and Christmas is rapidly approaching. Iíve been hard at work writing songs and with the help of Steve Satterwhite and his amazing engineering skills, Iíll have some of them ready soon. And now that Iíll be home for a while, Iím also expanding my teaching practice. If you know of anyone in the DFW area that would like lessons, please let them know about me. Happy Holidays and thanks for your support and well wishes this past year, and always.
