(back to who I am)
Prior to this (move) I spent 3 years just getting to know myself better. Not an easy project, but it was well worth the time. I am divorced from a lovely woman named Melissa. Oh, the wildness of youth- and finding that one must be TRUE to oneself and not live a lie
Pets: -Oh my soft spot *Animals* the un-conditional love that we seek from others but rarely get- They truly are the connection I see and feel are x-amples of God's power & Love
Occupation: Unfortunately was in a very bad Job related accident & am now on Disability. To see me you would never know but (I do). I am still planning someday on re-opening a Record Store. Right now I am employed FULL Time running a mailing list called Till Dawn (have you heard of it) Promoting Marc, Boy George & Janis Joplin on the Net and helping many of my Bolan friends promote their projects as well as working on passing along rare Bolan tracks after the many years of us being "Ripped-Off"
Birthday: I was born a Leo/Virgo Cusp on August 22nd 1955 (still a 20th Century Boy)
Fave Tracks: Thats a real tough one , as it changes from day to day But I will say that "Raw Ramp", "Ballrooms of Mars", "X-Mas Bop","Planet Queen",'Mambo Sun", "Till Dawn" & "Girl" & "The Visit" are always in my top ten....
Fave Bolan LP: I can honestly say that for fave LP/CD Is & always will be "T-REX" (Brown LP) has been that waye for over 30 years and I am sure will never change
*I have finally opened my heart to a new dog (after the passing of Cody)her name is "Token" after "Token of Love" . I must say unbiasedly she is the smartest dog I ever had, she is a total "frisbee Dog" I hope to enter her into a competition one daye. Well that is a bit dated now that she is 6 she still is my spiritual Dog mate also other creatures have found a place in my home

Rick Here, Russ is the dearest of friends as well as the man behind the idea and inspiration for the TILL DAWN list
I was 19 years old. It was September 16th 1977. Exactly one month later I was
20 years old.
"Marc Bolan?" "T.REX???" "Are you insane??????"
Even "close friends", who in 1971/2 would have gladly sold their genitalia for a
chance to meet Marc, dropped off like apples in the autumnal wind. "Come on,
it's time to move on, he's a has been..."
There were times, however, times when my judgement was impaired, when I looked
long and hard at what seemed an obsession. Peer pressure is understandably
difficult for anyone to resist. But this was negative pressure. There were now
no peers. A Bolanic desert, vast, impoverished, sterile and cold. I thought
long and hard... Was this a waste? Or a manifestation of the Wasteland in which
I found myself?
Honestly, my logic told me the former. My heart told me the latter. I guess
it's the balancing act of the libran, to suffer the duality, this gift. I sated
myself that I was lucky to have found such comfort from something so dear.
So I internalised. Marc Bolan's life's work became a part of me. My soul?
possibly. My defenses of Marc, short, sincere - but short. But I never lost
the faith. Not for a minute. Our greatest judge, test, is our own integrity.
For all my failures, all my faults, I could not drop Marc and pretend he
didn't - didn't STILL - talk to me so deeply, so fundamentally, ... it would be
tantamount to turning my back on myself...
"it was as if he spoke to me like he were a friend."
Then, later, came the internet. Dave Reginold blew me away. I found HIS site
and found that ALL THOSE MILES AWAY there was another fan... I got in touch and
we swapped a few emails. I was astounded to discover his in-depth bio site on
Marc. Astounded moreso because he was a yank! Marc never made it in America...
surely? Shortly thereafter my own site went up, I joined the Slider mailing
list... the usual route in those days.
don't expect a kid who in 68/69 was transported to Narnia and middle earth by
Unicorn and Beard of Stars...
don't expect a guy who has spent not one day since 1977 in grief of one form or
Don't expect any trustee of the 20th Century Boy's legacy (for that is truly
what it is, and surely what I and we are)...
to lie down, go along with the flow, keep the peace, offer no resistance, when what I'm being told is that what I think (and have thought for so long it seems forever) is wrong. It can't be. It just can't. I choose Marc. I choose Right. I choose Integrity. I choose.

Birthday: June 8, 1971 - Gemini
The knowledge seeker: I've studied music theory, sound system design, acoustical engineering, and computer science. Presently I am spending most of my time learning about computer networking. I also dabble in a bit of web design when I get the time.
The musician: I once had a band called Three Dollar Bag. We recorded a CD called "Big Pile Of Bones". We broke up before it was released. The sad thing was that we had enough "new songs" to record at least two more albums. I think my greatest musical achievement recording that CD was the guitar solo on a song that I wrote called "Luck Of The Draw". We wanted to put a backwards guitar solo on it. So we played the basic tracks backwards through my headphones while I recorded four separate solos over it. Then we mixed the original "forward" basic tracks with the "layered" solos all flipped backwards. It came out really cool!
The collector: I'm an avid music collector - especially live concert tapes. I'm constantly seeking to expand my collection and am always open to trades. See tapelist link above.
Introduction to T Rex: In 1976, I discovered my father's 45 RPM single of Bang A Gong (Get It On) / Raw Ramp. I took it for my own and "borrowed" his friend's Electric Warrior" album. I've had both ever since! From there I graduated to The Slider and Tanx. My musical paths took me on a journey to many other musical styles and musicians over the years.
Favorite T Rex Album: Electric Warrior, The Slider, Tanx
Favorite Tracks: Thunderwing, Planet Queen, Rapids, Mambo Sun, The Motivator, Life's A Gas (yes... there are so many)
