Personal Quote:

I have many loves in my life - music, cars, women and the piano. But not necessarily in that order.


A prolific composer, his eccentric recorded work nearly fell into obscurity. He is now held in very high regard by the followers of "lounge culture". His fans include John Zorn, Fred Schneider (of the B-52's), and Michael "The Millionare" Cudahy (of Combustable Edison). See more »
