|Spike is a real-life musician who has played professionally full-time ever since
graduating school. He has played everything from tiny bars and the Holiday/Ramada Inn
circuits, to opening concert shows for many stars, as well as playing alongside the
stars in their backup bands. In-between roads gigs he played in local bands, did studio
sessions and instructed guitar.
Settling down in Las Vegas, for several years he regularly played the famous "strip"
and local dance halls 5-7 nights a week. A chance meeting with the bass player of
Pop/R&B legend Gladys Knight led to filling in with Gladys' "All Knight Band" and the
offer of the position as regular guitarist in the All Knight Band.
