This is me (circa 1986).
At the time I was playing keyboards, recording and touring
with Lee Aaron, aka the "Metal Queen".
This was quite a stretch for me at times
considering I'm trained as a Jazz and Classical musician,
but it was fun nonetheless to be part of the big Rock & Roll machine...
We spent four months recording an album
at Metalworks recording studio in Toronto
(owned by the band Triumph).
The release was followed by a three month tour of Europe
(Germany, Austria, France, Holland, Switzerland, and England),
which was much like living the movie "Spinal Tap".
I could tell you road stories that would curl your hair...
Oh, yeah, in those days I was known as Jimi "G" Gelcer.
To this day, Lee is one of the best bosses I've ever had.
