It has even gone to the point that I have received negative online reviews for other records I’ve released, simply because those records were NOT the first Skafish album.

    Today is the birthday of the Skafish album What’s This? 1976-1979! Eight years ago on April 1, 2008, it became the first release on my label, 829 Records.

    For decades, I made several failed attempts to gain the rights back to my 1st album. It was both frustrating and at times debilitating, but something I refused to give up on. All along, the record company refused to re-release it, but at the same time, they wouldn’t sell it back to me so I…

  • #TBT: In July, 1977, I needed to have emergency knee surgery due to a dancing accident that caused a bone chip in my knee. Around 4 weeks later, I was back on stage performing my 21st birthday party concert. Check out the video that talks about the insanity of that time. Hope you like it…
