At the age of 14, he played in local bands and by that time, he was a sought after session musician, soon to be on the road with The Dramatics, opening for James Brown. In 1973 he was called by Stevie Wonder to join his band Wonderlove, followed by recording the album Fulfillingness' First Finale in 1974.[1]

Since then he has played, recorded or toured with some of the biggest names in music history, such as Elton John, Rod Stewart, Billy Ray Cyrus, Tom Jones, Van Morrison, Eric Burdon, Rick Springfield, Lyle Lovett, Ziggy Marley, Rickie Lee Jones, Ry Cooder, Keb' Mo', Cher, Queen Latifah,[2] jazz greats Herbie Hancock, Al Jarreau, blues greats John Lee Hooker, B.B.
