Ultimate Spinach Quotes
I was born 7 October 46, a Southern boy from an old Southern family. My dad was military so I don't have the "roots" that a lot of folks of my generation did. However, I was lucky enough to spend the first 12 years of my life growing up in Fairfax County, Virginia, on a 5 acre farm, surrounded by other small farms.

My lyrics have always come from two places: from my own observations and experiences and from that Dream Place the Shaman walks in. Some of the lyrics I write; some of the lyrics are written through me. Either way, don't listen to my lyrics if you're looking for that warm-and-cuddly feeling "We Are The World" gives.
