"It was an honor and dream come true to play drums on the "Mothers Spiritual" album for Laura Nyro. She had a huge influence on my early musical development. To witness her songwriting and vocal artistry first hand as her drummer over a two year period for the making of this album was a once in a lifetime gift. Todd Rundgren came in to produced a few songs on the album and that raised the level even more to work with two of my childhood idols together.

In 1982, Luther Vandross called me to be the drummer for his debut solo artist tour, saying that he thought my drumming on the Change's "Miracles" album inspired their best effort to date. At that time, I was in the midst of recording sessions playing drums on Laura's album. She asked me not to be absent from her project for any length of time, so I had to decline Luther's offer".
