Greg was born in Oakland California in 1952 and was raised in the east bay area. At the age of thirteen, he began playing the guitar and attended music lessons until the age of seventeen. Throughout the next few years, he played with numerous bands and developed into a lead singer and guitar player. In 1969 he had his first experience in a recording studio and made a demo record with the band he was playing with at that time. This was virtually the beginning of his music career and became the passion of Greg’s life. From 1970 to 1974, Greg performed in a well known band by the name of «Saba». The band consisted of eight pieces and performed extensively around northern California. Toward the end of 1974, Greg left the band and moved to Hawaii to pursue a solo career as a singer/songwriter. He performed mostly on the Island of Oahu within the Waikiki area. Greg earned the respect and honor of the talented close nit family of musicians in Hawaii. In 1976 Greg entered into a recording project with the producer of Napali Musical Society and recorded his album «Dreamer of Life». He gathered musicians from Hawaii to perform on the record which consisted of many instruments, including the vibraphone, a horn section, keyboards, bass guitar and percussion. Most of the music on the album was arranged by a long time friend and bass player Randy Carnevali. When the album was finished, Greg and the band performed in concerts within the Island of Oahu including the Crater festival and opening band for Sha-Na-Na at the Blaisdale Center to promote the record. In addition, the «Dreamer of Life» album was played on local radio stations of which live performances were made as well. In 1977, Greg was asked to bring the band to the Big Island of Hawaii to perform at the Kona Surf Hotel and various venues on the Island. Greg is very proud of his original songs on the album. The song «Things were so easy» was written by Greg when he was 19 years old and the song most dear to him is a song written for his wife Sheri titled «She’s my Lady». Greg continues to play and write music to this day.

First off, many thanks for the alternate Old Melodies, as not one of the now private participants. Hoping for an eventual reopening of that awesome blog.

As for this specific album, this is what I get when clicking on MF Download box. Fails with Firefox & Chrome, multiple attempts today & yesterday. Never seen this before with MF, unique to this link specifically. Likely a reload of this with a new link will fix it.
