I started writing my observations onto paper in the 70s. There were a few of my stories from Notes and The Road Is. In 1984 I had the opportunity to participate in a 3-week study program with Elvin Jones, Allen Ginsberg and Robert Frank at The Atlantic Center for the Arts. Studying with Elvin was certainly a life changing experience. I would later begin to learn more about beat writers and experimental filmmakers. This launched me into my quest to incorporate my work into drumming, media and spoken word. Much of the material published in Mr. Welch was written between 1995 and 2015. At that time, I was under the influence of Charles Bukowski, William Burroughs, Hunter Thompson and Jack Kerouac. As a writer, musician or any genre of artist, I believe you are expressing who you are, your feelings and personality. I’m not the same person I was during that period. Much of my narrative monologues written during that period came from my anger and frustration with what I perceived in the world. Though much of it may be true, I’ve resigned myself from being that writer. The (4) books I’ve authored with my narrative monologues are complete, there won’t be any more. Playing drums and producing other projects are my priority. I discontinued the sale of this book from Amazon. I arranged many of the monologues into my (3) book trilogy. I have a few in my possession if you’re interested in obtaining them. I like this book, the cover, the title and most things about it.
