Hello all!

I thought that I’d drop you a note, after getting settled into my new home, that being FM, of course. Yes, I’ve returned and glad to be back! It’s been several years and I’ve been through numerous musical endeavors-some successful, some not so successful (hopefully not of my doing!). About a year ago, Mark and I got back in touch, in a parking lot in Leesburg and talked about Rush (there’s a little more, but that’s the nutshell version). Being aware that I was beginning the process of recording a disc of my tunes, he fully offered his assistance & resources, to which I said, “Yes!” to. He even suggested that he’ll sit there and turn the knobs, with his mouth shut, if that was desired, but I knew better-he’s got a good set of ears on him! Things rolled along and we “reconnected” in the process. I’ve always had a fun time hanging with him (that’s a non-gay kind of comment…not that there’s anything wrong with that…), so that was a big plus to the fact that the music was sounding great. He liked the idea of playing bass on the tunes…he’s a bassist…so that was “no brainer”. Still, things rolled along…

Fast forward…no, further than that… Coming to the end of another recording session, Mark fills me in on situation with Rob’s departure and offers up the idea of my filling the vacancy. After a couple of phone calls among all of us, things were a go. My¬†first show was on Nov 15th at an old haunt, Fat Daddy’s in York, PA (there’s pix posted elsewhere on our site and on our Flickr site-check ’em out!). Since then, it’s been quite enjoyable to be out there rocking with my friends, on and off stage, as well as starting to catch up with my FM friends & supporters.

We are currently working on a new FM record, which we hope to unleash up your ears…and receive a overwhelming “YIPPEE!” for. Also keep an eye out for another block of tunes from my solo CD to be released soon. If you wish to contact me directly, please drop a line to: dean [at]

I truly hope to see you front & center at an FM show in the near future!

    DEAN!!! It’s been forever!!! We don’t get out much these days, but will have to make a trip to see Funny Money soon. Looks like the first PA show isn’t until August at Fat Daddy’s. Hope all is good. We miss you guys!!!

    Yes, you do need to come out say hello-it’s been quite a while. See you soon, eh? D!C!

    Nicole Scherzinger has divulged that she is glad that she succeeded Cheryl Cole with regards to the X-Factor USA. She feels she is really ‘better served’ as a suitable judge more than as a host.
