STORIES

I've had some good responses to the tour diaries! I'm now expanding on the "Stories" page to include some memoirs, which are not necessarily or strictly music related. These will include what I hope will be interesting, if not amusing, vignettes from the worlds of flying, emergency medicine and more. Also, I am beginning to post my own Radio Birdman "book" in installments. Please let me know if you'd like to hear about anything in particular, or anything I can do to make the site better generally. Thank you for your support! - Deniz

THE NACHO STORY ( 1982 ) : Here is a true story from my time as a Navy flight surgeon. It's not every day that a jet fighter rams a train and the pilot walks away... 

 

RON ASHETON & NIAGARA IN HAWAII  ( 1984 ) : This is a story of the time that Ron Asheton and Niagara visited me in Hawaii in 1984… resulting in a chaotic and often funny clash of cultures. The cutting edge of avant Detroit rock n roll meets Marine fighter aviation, and the Pacific Ocean … strange but true!
