Personal Quote:

'Captain Fantastic' was the first album in history to enter the (American) album chart at number one. We did it for a second time after that. Now that's not a boast, that's frightening.

Trivia:

Other music artists he has worked with include Alice Cooper, Melissa Manchester, Heart and Jefferson Starship. See more »
