Dating Game: Still Single...But "I could be persuaded."
Getting Started: My mom and dad had a country music band called "Sunset Rythmn Pals" that played in and around Winnipeg for several years. I grew up listening to, and eventually jamming with some of our city's best pickers and singers. My mother sat me down and showed me the basic chords and then I went on to put it all together by ear. I was 16 when I started gigging, and there's still no end in sight!
On March 29, 2004 Bellamy Brothers band alumnus Dannie Jones passed away. Dannie played pedal steel guitar onmany of the Bellamy Brothers' hit recordings and toured with the Bellamys.
