Bill Rocks

Seriously. He says "Playing guitar is relaxing for me. I enjoy working on tunes together with my guys. I frequently play with a client, a couple of golfing buddies, and a few others.  I primarily play a six-string electric guitar, but I have two six string acoustic electrics, a twelve string acoustic electric, and then three purely electrics."

He goes on to explain "I learned to play guitar in my bedroom when I was 14 years old. I stole my sister's guitar and taught myself to play it. At the time, I was playing violin, so I had some musical experience, but am primarily self-taught."

"I like to be proactive with clients to address legal issues on the front end of business transactions.  Although the legal tail should not wag the business dog, a little extra legal protection up front usually saves a lot of potential expense on the back end when the deal goes south."
