A few words from your webmaster...

Yep, that's a picture of me... OK, so it was taken around 1989 in a bar in St. Charles, IL. For a more recent picture of me, visit the photo gallery, specifically the May 3, 2001 pictures at the Hard Rock Cafe in Cleveland

Growing up in Cleveland during the late 1970's, I was exposed to Ian Hunter on a regular basis. Ian was working with Steve Popovich of Cleveland International Records who helped bring national attention to Meatloaf's Bat Out of Album and later, Ian's Your Never Alone With A Schizophrenic album. Ian seemed to always be playing at the Cleveland Agora. Oh, did I forget to mention "Cleveland Rocks"? You can't attend a sporting event in this city without hearing it played at least once during the game.

For as long as I can remember, I've always been a Mott the Hoople/Ian Hunter fan. I had all of the commercially available recordings, but I had no idea of the magnitude of other material that was circulating. A few years ago, I began a quest to locate a copy of Mott's Rest In Peace bootleg. I searched the net, found some great fan web sites, made a few inquiries and eventually located a copy of the album. Along the way, I met a lot of fans who shared the same interest in the music of Mott the Hoople and Ian Hunter. As a result, I have put together my web site to share with other fans throughout the world.

Thanks for visiting!
