The album:

"Tays-tee" is pure jazz and "Hardly working blues" is blues jazz genre. "Nag" is rock! "Everybody gets the blues, sometimes" is of the "swamp country-blues-rock" genre.

On a Personal note:

"Tests of fire"

"In 2001, during a show opening for Tower of Power at the Radisson Hotel Grove in Sacramento, I experienced a knife-like pain in my back. MRI's discovered a bone chip had broken off and crushed my L3 nerve. I was in a wheelchair for almost a year and lost most of the muscle mass in my left leg, leaving it partially paralyzed. Spinal surgery, continuous physical therapy, a strong faith and the love of friends and my beautiful wife, Patty, got me walking again. Music alleviates the pain so I perform more now than I did before the incident. I have to admit, there were times I was ready to go home to my Lord.

My faith was later tested again when, driving back alone from a long distance show on a deserted road, I fell asleep at the wheel, crashed and totaled my van. Thank God no one else was involved or injured. A hand truck flew forward and sliced open a large portion of skin on the back of my head. I woke up, called 911 on my cell phone, they pried me out of my van and stitched me up in the hospital.

Visit crystalimageband.weebly.com for live video, show schedule, band blog, booking information and more. Our devoted fans are like family. We love the opportunity to get to know them better. Often, they have stories to share that are much more powerful than mine. I give thanks for every single day and the wonderful blessings in my life. We are currently working on an easy listening cd project titled "Country Folk". I hope our music, live and recorded, brings joy to those who listen to it."
