Billy Cage grew up in Southern California and was influenced by many of the bands from the 60's . . .

He later moved to Colorado and felt the influence of country on rock n' roll and became a fan of the Eagles, Marshall Tucker and others.

Chevy Van (Tommy Johns), More Than I can Say (Leo Sayer), Wildfire (Michael Murphy), Guitar Man (Bread) . . . on and on the tunes keep coming, like a stroll down memory lane.
