Discography

This page includes information on, and audio clips from albums and singles that I’ve been fortunate enough to have played on (and/or produced/engineered in some capacity).

As you can see in the list below, I’ve created a way to be able to click on the project name and have it twirl down (similar to the way FAQ pages are often presented) to reveal more info about it. When you click on it, you’ll see as much info as I’ve been able to gather and/or remember, along with audio and/or video for each item.

As I’m able to get through all the records I’ve worked on , they will each eventually be added to that dropdown system but in the meantime, any records that are not listed there, are in a standard list below.

This record was recorded live at Sturgis, in 2006, on a festival bill that featured the Steve Miller Band, The Fabulous Thunderbirds and a number of other acts.

After finally obtaining the multitrack audio recordings that were made at the event, Gregg and I brought the tracks into my studio, where we did a few minor edits and generally made sure everything was in good shape.

After that, his son, Sean mixed the record and we released it in 2009.

Additional Info

We initially started recording this record was back in December of 2011, when we went to Sonic Ranch studios, outside of El Paso, TX, to record five songs.

Not long after that, Gregg joined Ringo Starr's All Starr Band, and the recordings were put on the back burner for a bit, but we did reconvene in December of 2013 to record most of the rest of the basic tracks that wound up on the record. A couple of the songs we did then didn't make it on the record, and a couple of others, including "What About Love" and "Only You" were written and conceived later.

Eventually, in between moving, touring with Ringo, touring with the Gregg Rolie Band, and the Gregg Rolie Quartet, plus a few other obligations, the record was finally completed and released in 2019.

I hope you enjoy it!

Here is a YouTube Link for the track, "Many Rivers To Cross (Live From The Mirage)", from Cher's Greatest Hits: 1965 - 1992.

Track List

Many Rivers To Cross (Live From the Mirage)

Additional Info

This track was taken from the DVD, "Cher Extravaganze - Live At The Mirage", which was originally broadcast as a TV special on CBS television. The show was recorded in 1990 but didn't air until 1991.

The band features Bon Jovi bassist, Hugh McDonald, REO Speedwagon guitarist, Dave Amato, Darlene Love, and Paul Mirkovich, who has served as the musical director on the hit TV Show, "The Voice", on NBC, for many years now.

An interesting bit of trivia is that two of the band members, Hugh McDonald and Darlene Love, have both been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, but strangely, Cher, despite her illustrious career, both as a solo artist and as part of Sonny & Cher, has not.

Given that there are some artists who've been inducted that arguably were influenced by her, I think she's deserving of it. I guess we'll see what happens!

Here is a video for Many Rivers To Cross, taken from that DVD.

Additional Info

This record was recorded during a live show that we played at Capitol Studios in Hollywood, CA.

The show was broadcast live on the Westwood One Radio Network and since the studio we were playing in was relatively large, they had some invited guests as well as radio contest winners in attendance, so it was a sort of intimate show, for one a few people (I'm guessing maybe 50 -75 or so?), with the added advantage of being done in a world class recording facility, so of course, it was recorded.

The record was not released widely and a lot of people still are unaware of its existence, so now you know...I hope you enjoy it!

Additional Info

This record was recorded in the spring of 1993, at Fantasy Studios, in Berkeley, CA.

We enlisted the services and expertise of Nigel Green to produce, engineer, and mix the record. Nigel established himself as the engineer who worked on many huge records for world renowned producer, Mutt Lange, including some of Def Leppard's biggest records, such as "Hysteria" and "Pyromania", as well as Bryan Adams's record "Wake Up The Neighbors". Coincidentally, we had toured with Bryan in 1992, as part of the tour he was promoting that record on.

We started pre-production at our rehearsal studio, in Petaluma, CA, where we spent a week or two going over the songs, arrangements and some technical details, before heading into Fantasy Studios to record the tracks.

After all the recording was done, Nigel wanted to mix at Battery Studios, in NYC, so that's what we did. Gregg, Kevin and I all went to New York for that and while we were there, we got to see Paul McCartney at the Meadowlands, in NJ, which was fantastic!

Anyway, the record was made for Interscope Records, who we were signed to at the time, but they gradually turned into a rap/grunge label and eventually they transferred the rights to the master to us, and we released it on three different boutique labels - Music For Nations, in Europe, Avex Trax/Bareknuckle, in Japan, and Miramar in the US.

Additional Info

This record was conceived as a collection of music that people could use for comfort when they might be in the midst of one of life's difficult times. They were that for Marcy, so we decided to record versions of these songs that would be done in a delicate, soothing, and comforting way, featuring not only Marcy's beautiful voice, but Wally's expressive piano playing and arrangements.

We hope you enjoy it and if you'd like to learn more about Marcy, the Covers of Comfort album, or our company, Circle of Comfort, LLC, please visit Marcy's site.

Additional Info

Charley initially contacted me through my website when he was looking for someone to play live drums on the songs he was working on, so when I first started working with him, that's mainly what I was doing. Since Charley was in the Sacramento area, and I was living in the Los Angeles area, we worked by sending WAV files back and forth, which is something I've been doing now, since I first put my studio together in the late 1990s.

After sending him back the rough mixes of the tracks I did for him, he asked me if I knew any other musicians who could play on the record, and at the time, I was working extensively with the Gregg Rolie Band, so it made sense to ask Wally Minko to play keyboards, Alphonso Johnson to play bass, and Kurt Griffey to play guitar. Wally and Alphonso, in particular have an incredible pedigree in the jazz genre - Wally having played with Jean Luc Ponty for many years, and Alphonso having played with Weather Report, George Duke and many other jazz luminaries in his illustrious career.

As the project continued and evolved, Charley asked me to get some other musicians for certain parts and certain songs. Alphonso became busy with other things so I got Matt Bissonette to play on several songs, and I recruited Michito Sanchez on percussion, Tom Marino on Trumpet and Trombone, and Tom Evans on Tenor Sax...incredible musicians all!

I recorded most of their performances in my studio so essentially, I became the producer of the record as I engineered and oversaw what everyone was playing, and after each one, I would send Charley another rough mix. I guess he liked how those were sounding because when we were all done, he asked me to mix the record for him, too.

By that time, I had moved to Austin, TX, so I mixed it in my new studio there. And then, when that was all done, I took it to Jerry Tubb, at Terra Nova Mastering to put the finishing touches on it.

I'm proud of the way this record turned out and while I've played lots of jazz over the years, it's not the genre I'm most closely associated with, or that I typically work in, so it was a lot of fun getting to stretch out and do this with everyone.

I hope you enjoy it!

Additional Info

This was yet another remote recording project. Dan Gallapoo (aka Doberman Dan), contacted me through my website and asked if I'd be interested in working on his music and of course, I was glad to.

This was another project where, as it progressed, he asked me if I knew some other people who could play on it, so I recommended most of the same people who I've done literally hundreds of songs with...Wally Minko on Keyboards, Matt Bissonette on Bass, Tom Marino on Trumpet and in this case, I also got Charley Langer, whose "Never The Same" record I played drums on, recorded, and produced, to play some saxophone.

This is another venture into the Jazz realm for me me. I hope you dig it!

Additional Info

I've been fortunate to have worked with Dave on several of his recordings over the years, going all the way back to the late 1980s.

He's a great guy and always very complimentary, and he plays drums, so he's able to communicate what he's looking for really well, too.

This was another project where we just sent the files back and forth (I recorded all the drum tracks in my home studio) and whenever I had a track done, I'd just send the files back to Paul, who imported them into his session and they did whatever other overdubs they needed to do after that.

I still haven't met Paul either, but that's not uncommon for a lot of the remote recording I've done over the last 25 years or so. Hopefully we'll meet up one of these days soon!

I really enjoyed working on this record and I hope you dig it too!

Additional Info

Dave had been working on these songs for a while and when he decided to actually move forward and put a record together, he came over to my studio and we recorded all the drums for it in about two days. 

I believe some of the tracks may have existed previously, from past projects that he didn't use them for, so some bass, guitar and keyboard tracks were already there. The rest of the overdubs were done after we did the drum tracks and he brought everything over to Pat Regan's studio, where they did some more overdubs and also mixed the record.

I hope you enjoy it!

Additional Info

I was thrilled when Jesse contacted me about playing drums on this record.

I had known him for over 10 years at that point but we'd never really worked on any projects together except for the odd demo here and there, and I always had great respect for his songwriting and musical abilities, so I was glad to finally get to do a whole record with him.

We did all the drum tracks over two days at my studio and brought those tracks back to his own studio to do overdubs and mix.

It was really a ton of fun doing versions of some of the hit songs he'd written for other people, but doing them with his interpretation. Those songs include "Walk On Water", which Eddie Money had a huge hit with, "Make Me A Believer", which was done by the incredible Patty Smythe, and "All I Want Is You", which was done by Alias, with Freddy Curci.

I think, if you listen to it, you might agree that a lot of it is as good or better than the more "well known" versions.

Additional Info

I've worked quite a bit with John Pratt over the years, including on three records for the band, "Firefly", as well as various other projects.

When he decided to make this solo record, I was living in Austin, TX and John asked me if I'd be willing to fly out to Los Angeles to play on it for him, which of course, I was glad to do, and I was honored he thought enough of me to ask. It's not like there are no good drummers in LA!

I flew out to LA, John picked me up, and I stayed with him at his beautiful home in the hills of Encino. We spent a little time going over the songs, and I made charts of everything before going into the studio to record them.

I was able to get the companies I endorse, Sonor Drums and Zildjian Cymbals, to provde the gear and we got set up at Validus Recording Studio, under the auspices of the extremely talented producer and engineer, Ryan Green.

Within a couple days, we had all of the drum tracks done and John spent some time after that doing overdubs with all the talented musicians who also appear on this record, all of whom I'm honored to have performed on this with.

Ricky and Bruce Gowdy did an amazing job putting the whole thing together and I think it came out pretty good. Give it a listen and see if you agree. I hope you enjoy it!
