This is a complete list of artists, albums and songs to which I've contributed (1977-2012).
One web-page for each album I've contributed to (note - I'm still working on this ... only a few albums are represented).
Stories behind the songs (Adams, Aerosmith, Ozzy, etc). One page for each of approximately 300 songs I've co-written, including photographs, comments, and chart information.
