Q#1: Are you a Bay Area Native? and if not, how long have you lived in the Bay? Kevin: I grew up in Detroit, went to New Mexico State on a track scholarship (400 meters), dropped out and joined a punk band then moved to Houston, TX where I lived for a year before moving to SF in ’84.
Q#2: When did you start on the creative path you are currently on? Kevin: 1976, songs from that time of life made me decide to be a musician. Prince (dirty mind) made me want to play my own “original” music.
Q#3: Where do you find your inspiration? Kevin: Everything has a story to be told, everything makes some sort of sound.
Q#4: What was the first piece of vinyl you ever purchased? Kevin: the Yes Album (around ’71) had a song about chess and my father was teaching to play. My favorite purchase was Madhouse 8 (prince) I bought it because of the dope woman on the cover… this was in the 80s when I was a DJ. My first concert was Isaac Hayes when he did “Shaft”.
Q#5: Anything else you’d like to share? a joke/quote? Kevin: the only Fellini rule is FEELING IS FIRST and (for adults only) Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.
