In the 1970's, the hippie generation, there were thousands of rock bands traveling across the US like gypsies playing in bars. Unfortunately, traveling with them were their children. It was the era of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. I know this, because I was there traveling in one of those bands.

Lyrics Of My Life

Marney, Ben 2017

I've spent my life working as a traveling musician. Along the way, I've met some interesting people and seen some indescribable things. Although my books are works of fiction, they are based on real people I've met and the amazing places I've been. In my 20's and 30's, with my beautiful wife Dana by my side, we performed in or traveled through all 50 of the United States.

After that, we traveled and performed literally around the world... We've walked the tiny winding streets of Zanzibar off the east coast of Africa; jogged the snow packed streets of Juneau, Alaska; ran through the back alleys of Hong Kong, China; and whisked through the crowded streets of Cochin, India in the back of a three-wheeled scooter taxi on the way to see a twenty-five hundred year old Buddhist temple.

We've ridden a train through the beautiful countryside of Sri Lanka and rode on the back of an elephant in Candidasa; scuba dived an ancient sunken ship off the island of Bali; bought hand painted silk art on the streets of Bombay, India and strolled along the breathtakingly beautiful beaches of the Seychelle Islands that some believe was the Garden Of Eden.

We've stood in the center of Tiananmen Square and walked the ancient paths through the Forbidden City in Beijing, China. Also, we’ve traded tequila shots with Hank Williams Jr. in the back of his million-dollar tour bus, got a contact high in Willie’s, smoked cigars in Waylon's and actually lent my Cadillac for two days to Kenny Rogers.

We have performed my original songs to crowds of hundreds, to crowds of thousands, and even over thirty thousand once, backed up by the Jackson Symphony Orchestra. And most importantly, we are personal friends of Mickey Mouse. Hopefully, we're not done yet…
