On the cover of…

Which cover would you want to be on?

The Rolling Stone magazine, just like Dr. Hook?

Or your local newspaper?

I didn’t ask to be on any cover, but I ended up on 4 of them. Rock music album covers, that is:  a vinyl LP, 2 tape cassettes and one CD.


I am grateful that my friends printed my name on their baby, if only for my son to say “my daddy’s name was on a rock and roll record!”

Here they are…


Survolaj 1 (1992) – the first record I got my name on (me and buddy Raz took this album to Hendrix’s grave in May 2011, where this pic was taken). I was in the studio while the album was recorded in early summer 1992 in Bucharest. My money actually paid for the studio time!
Romanian art-rock band Talitha Qumi’s only album (1996). My name is on the inside cover on the ‘friends’ section.
Hometown rock band B’N’G worked a few years to get this one out, around 1998 if I remember well. I spent countless hours with the band at the radio station where I worked in Baia Mare, at their rehearsing room, backstage and in countless parties.
My third time being named on a rock record: Baia Mare, Romania band BNG’s only album.
Fast forward to 2011, funk Seattle band The Staxx Brothers lists my name on their 3rd album. Apparently playing them in my podcast and travelling to Seattle to see them live got my name on it: thanks, friends!
The fourth time my name goes on a rock record: Seattle funk/hiphop band The Staxx Brothers thanked me on their 2011 album, Jungle Cat.
