WELCOME TO MY WORLD
"Itís impossible to nail down a specific style or genre to characterize my music. Whether itís
cover-tunes or my original songs, there are many influences in the mix. I simply
look for music that feels right for me. I also adapt songs & arrangements that put my guitar in the
spotlight. Plus, Iím known for putting it all out there in a lively, often-animated performance
that audiences never fail to find entertaining." - JG.
Recent News - December 5, 2017
Iíve been flying low on the radar recently, and while I do usually enjoy a subdued performance schedule this
time of year, thereís been a medical issue thatís had me lay back even moreÖactually caused me to cancel some
recent gigs. It started as a series of severe heartburn episodes that I assumed were triggered by an
NSAID drug that I started taking in the summer for arthritis. I dropped the drug and curbed my diet
habits, and it went away, but then came back a month later with a vengeance. I recently had an
ultrasound to rule out any problem with the gallbladder a/o liver, and it seems everythingís OK with that.
While I have no doubt that what Iíve experienced is at least in-part stomach acid related, the search for
answers led to an EKG that ended up showing some abnormalities (had one 4 months ago that was perfect).
The cardio doctor is concerned enough about what he sees that he strongly recommends a heart catherization,
which Iím having done tomorrow morning (Wed. 12/6). Iím pretty confident this is all simply a roadblock
that will get resolved, and just part of a greater theme that Iíve been feeling about a number of things
(including my act)Öa bit stagnant & burned out. I really need to take this opportunity to regroup,
refresh, reinvent, and make a few important lifestyle changes as well.
I thank my wife Lynn for all her love and supportÖall my love in return. And thanks to all who
support & enjoy my music, and for your friendship & concern. Godís blessing & my greatest appreciation
to you all. Hey, Iíll be OKÖcause ďIíve Got a RockíníRoll HeartĒ.
Rock'n'Roll Heart Update - December 8, 2017
Had my heart cath Wed. (12/6) and had two stents put in.
I was told I had severe blockage that could have easily resulted in tragedy, so will consider
myself lucky. I will be laying low over the holidays, but the prognosis is
all good and I plan on getting back out as soon as I feel up to it after the 1st of the year.
Thanks to everyone for their concerns, prayers, & well-wishes. You have my deepest
appreciation & gratitude. Thanks Again!.
