Biography

15 years old I saw the Beatles live. John, Paul, George, and Ringo, they changed my life. All the girls screaming, getting out of hand. Got my first guitar and joined my first band. 40 years later, still playin the bars Never made the big time, fast girls or cars noone comes,noone cares, close to givin up Got keep the dream alive, I just can't give it up These are all songs I've been working on literally over the last 30 years. I first recorded So Inviting with Rich Ranno (Starz, Stories) on his little 4 track in 1976. We played together in a band called Bungi in Wisconsin for years, starting around 1970. Used to open for Fuse at festivals. At that time Rick Nielson(Cheap Trick) was playing a mellotron. They were incredible. We were still around when Cheap Trick got together, first with Xeno,I still have a poster with him, and then Robin Zander. Tom Peterson found me my first badass bass, a '56 Precision, from Paul Hamer's store in Chicago. We thought we had the world by the balls in those days. We opened for Bob Seger, Cactus, Vanilla Fudge, James Gang, Mountain, and so many others I can't even remember. To be continued................

Lyrics

Don't Ever Let Her Go

Written By: Jon Parrot

Don’t Ever Let Her Go

Hold on, to what you know
And never let go—keep it together
Don’t forget to show, just what she means
And don’t ever let her go

You tried, all your life to find the love light
That’s now shining so bright
She fills your heart
And don’t ever let her go

Don’t ever let her go
Don’t ever let her go
Don’t ever let her go
Don’t ever let her go

You see something in her eyes
And it shows—don’t ever let it go
You feel something in her heart
And it grows—don’t ever let it go
She is the one, your time has come
Don’t let her run

(lead)

You see something in her eyes
And it shows—don’t ever let it go
You feel something in her heart
And it grows—don’t ever let it go
She is the one, your time has come
Don’t let her run

Don’t stop, hold on forever to what you got
Don’t let it cool down, got to keep it hot
And don’t ever let her go
Don’t ever let her go
Don’t ever let her go
Don’t ever let her go
Don’t ever let her go

How Much

Written By: Jon Parrot

How Much

(intro)
Through the howlin wind I hear
Your voice calling softly here
I am longing for your touch
You have no idea how much

(chorus)
How much, how much, how much I love you
How much, how much, how much I love you

I am looking fro the place
I can only see your face
I am longing fro your touch
You have no idea how much

(chorus)
(repeat chorus)

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh….

Through the howlin wind I hear
Your voice calling softly here
Well I am longing for your touch
You have no idea how much

(chorus)
