One of the greatest accomplishments in my life was to become a member of the band "Rufus" in 1974'. I have always considered myself as an average Bass Player, and still do, but being in Rufus brought out something special in my playing at that time. The rhythm section of myself Tony Maiden & Andre Fischer proved to be ripe and fertile ground for a young p bass playing guy like me, along with the fact that it offered me a first opportunity to write songs which meant that all those guitar chords i used to play sitting on the porch at home would be used in songs that people the world over would hear and in turn become a part of their lives too! One song in particular is "Sweet Thing".
