Main Links


The links on the upper left side of this page are primarily concerned with my music and career.

It features a biography, music samples, a section on my Dad, "The Silver Fox". The road section features information about recent or upcoming shows. There's a merchandise section, where you can buy CDs, and photos. There's also a full length video section, a guestbook area, and finally a weblog, which I try to update frequently.

I will also be addressing some of the questions that I'm often asked during my travels. So, with that in mind, enjoy the site and carry on...


How the web was born

HTML was originally developed by Tim Berners-Lee. It was created to make documents available to a wide variety of computers. He also created HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol), the underlying machinery of the World Wide Web.


XHTML is an acronym for Extensible Hypertext Markup Language. XHTML is HTML defined as an XML application. It is supposed to replace HTML. XHTML is a stricter form of HTML. No more sloppy code. Extensible means it capable of being extended, in other XML applications for the Internet, as well as standalone programs. Semantic Web applications will be able to take advantage of XHTML documents. XHTML is a leaner and cleaner version of HTML. One advantage to having cleaner code means that pages should download faster. It also makes for easier updates, as the code is easier to read, and less cluttered. XHTML is coming to a browser near you, so you may as well learn it now, before XHTML 2.0 arrives. To stay current, websites should start using XHTML now.

XHTML Syntax Rules

There are a few differences between HTML and XHTML.


The premier tool for cleaning up your code, and making it validate is HTML Tidy. It's an Open Source utility (that means it's free)that will parse and correct incorrect syntax. To validate your web page, you can use the W3C's Markup Validation Service. You can validate by URL or File Upload. It's a great service, and again, it's free.


Here are some great XHTML links

Happy coding!

Still more stuff...

  1. Being taken seriously.
  2. How my father became a star.
  3. So, you wanna' be a country star?
  4. Who do you like better, Garth or Gershwin?
  5. You'll eat what you're served...
  6. The Media: Out with the old, in with the new.
  7. It's great exposure.

Thoughts on some of the people I've played with or known.
