Hear what others have to say about Mark: I have to thank my amigo Robert for that quote,i wouldn't have thought of it! I've been writing my own material for a long time,as soon as started playing guitar i started to write songs. I've never stopped working on original music,i constantly keep trying to develop & progress,as best i can. I taught music for 12 years in a college & met lots of really creative characters along the way! I write however i feel,based on what's going on at that moment in time & where my musical vibe takes me. I really dig dudes like Jeff Beck,Robben Ford,Joe Satriani,Billy Gibbons,Jimmy Page,Stevie Ray Vaughan & Frank Zappa-there are so many people i could mention,but i'd literally be here all day ye'all! I really dig the concept of this soundcloud community & i hope that many of us find ourselves able to engage in creative ventures,that are enabled by this fab'n'groovy soundcloud community! To all of ye'all who listened to my songs,posted comments & sent messages-many thanks & mucho appreciation! I hope ye'all have a cosmical musical adventure that cleanses your soul & frees your mind! Take care ye'all,may your groove always be solid & Stay Funky you cheeky munkys! Peace'n'Zen
