Ok, by 1985-87' I've successfully aligned myself with a great personal manager, (after 2 previously failed attempts); and began recording a series of high-quality demos at New York's Media Sound Studios. During this time, Prince was reigning supreme following the release of Purple Rain, Madonna's star was rapidly ascending, and artists like David Lee Roth, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, and Guns N Roses were beginning a strong siege upon the record charts. This is also about the time that I became a founding principle member of the notorious socio-political activists, The Black Rock Coalition established in 1986 by legendary Living Colour guitarist, Vernon Reid. I made my public NYC debut on Feb. 1987 at the iconic punk-rock mecca, CBGB, while premiering the New York version of Banzai Kik to a record-breaking sell-out audience.
