Well, here goes. My name is Paul and here's my story. I was born in Cleveland,Ohio. I moved to Evanston, Illinois when I was 5 yrs. old. I started playing guitar when I was 7 yrs. old and took lessons from Robert Harris, the original guitarist on "The Tonight Show". Music and writing music are my passions. I play electric and acoustic guitars and have written about 35 songs over the years. Sports is another passion of mine, specifically Football and Baseball. I attended Evanston Township High School and played football and lacrosse for four yrs. I was very fortunate to have one of the greatest high school coaches ever in Murney Lazier. We were ranked #1 in the state all four years!! There was also some very talented players I played with that went on to NFL careers. One such player was Emery Moorehead who played for the '85 Bears. And yes I'm a die hard Bears and Cubs fan. Horse Racing is also a big interest of mine. I was a Thoroughbred Trainer for 18 yrs. What a rush!!! So the purpose of this website is to have discussions that concern music and sports, which I think in some strange way go hand in hand. I'm going to attempt to write a blog for the first time, so bear with me. I'm by no means a professional in any sense of the word. I just really enjoy these two subjects!! I would like for this to be something like a "bar talk with Paul" site. Nobody is right and nobody is wrong but we all have opinions that should be heard. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact me. You can use the contact form I have provided.
