Doc was Born in Bellingham Washington in the USA. His dad was a Bugle blowing crazed Gunnery Sargeant from the USMC. And  his mom was a sweet timid woman  who loved to play the piano. Doc contributes a great amount of his love for music to his mother. Using her piano as hand therapy for Doc. Doc's mom would teach him cords on the piano. That would help to  stretch out his curled up fingers as he recovered from Polio.

During that time Doc fell in love with music and after a few years Doc joined the school marching band. Doc then  joined a Drum and Bugle corp. Doc’s first ( real ) Drum set  was a set of ‘Pearls’ that looked just like Ringo’s!  Man after that it was all about the Music, All about the  Rock & Roll!
