Welcome to my new website!
I wanted to start out by thanking my friend Leon Tsilis for doing such a great job as webmaster of my last site, which he created & operated for the past five years. We first met back in the 1990's during my time with Wishbone Ash and we've remained good friends ever since. Leon worked for MCA Records back in the '70s and Wishbone was one of the many bands he promoted for the label. Even after I left the group he was always a great advocate of my music, and still is. When I told him that I wanted to shut down the old site and create a new one that I could run myself, he was not only cool about it, he offered to help out however he could. So, many thanks, my friend.
I also wanted to thank some of the music journalists from around the world who have reviewed and recommended my material over the years. A quick shout out to: Scott Itter, Ryan Sparks, J.T. Garrard, Robert Silverstein, Willie G. Moseley, John Heidt, Barry Cleveland, Alan Taylor...and anyone else I forgot to mention.
These days my goal is to simplify things wherever I can, including here, and now with technology being what it is, I figured it was time to give this a try. I'll keep updating the site as things happen - RF.
