"I bought my treasured “Les Paul” in 1975 for 450 of hard earned cash and joined a five piece harmony band “Bugsy” working for “Wheatley Taverns” among others. This band performed my first Beach Boys song “Good Vibrations”(I sang the same part then as I do now). I met up with bass player “Dave” and drummer “Paul” when they were in “Endless Summer” tribute band and I joined Paul in “The Love Swallows” 6 piece band in 1998. Both these bands drifted away around 2000, and from the sea spray came forth “The Beached Boys”.
