“Old Friends” Performed Live

Monday, December 29th, 2014

2014 has been a good year, but it’s also been a sad one for me as I’ve lost some of my best and oldest friends. Most of them were friends from way back, and brilliant musicians that never got the recognition they deserved. Here is a song called “Old Friends” which I wrote many years ago, from my album “Spring Rain” performed live at the Jane Mallet Theatre in Toronto, Canada. I dedicate this song to my friends everywhere, but especially to those that I’ve lost this year, and in the past.


“Spring Rain” appears on the album, Spring Rain (a reworked version released in 2003).

The reworked version of Spring Rain, released in 2003 is available on:
