Greg is a 25-year veteran of the Bay Area music scene. Initially
from the state of Washington , Greg was one of the founding members
of the "Heart of Gold Band", along with Keith and Donna
Godchaux, when the band was formed in 1980. After the band's breakup,
he and "Heart of Gold" guitarist Steve Kimmock went on
to form "Zero". "Zero" performed over 1300
concerts and recorded eight albums. The band was a revolving door
for San Francisco musicians and included at various times: John
Cipollina, Jerry Garcia, Nicky Hopkins, Pete Sears and many more.
More recently, Greg started the band, Greg's Eggs, "dynamic
improvisational rock with soaring melodies, new Robert Hunter lyrics,
and tons of drums". "The best band I've seen in ten years";
writes Dennis McNally, author and publicist for the Grateful Dead.
Greg is also a member of "The Mix" with Melvin Seals,
Jeff Pevar, and John Kadlecik and Kevin Rosen of the "Dark
Greg has composed soundtracks for plays, film and TV; published
over fifty original songs, and played drums on more than twenty-five
albums. Joel Selvin of the San Francisco Chronicle writes; "A
musical drummer with powerful dynamics that puts down a beat that
is the heart of the band."
Greg was instrumental in keeping the music of the original "Heart
of Gold Band" alive having overseen the release of live recorded
material from 1980. Now he comes full circle, as he is once again
the drummer of the reformed "Heart of Gold Band".
