Doug began his musical journey in the '60s as a surf-oriented guitarist, and fronted
several bands while in school. About the time that he heard his first Leslie spin
up, he made the switch to organ and piano. Heavily influenced by Seattle acts such
as Dave Lewis, the Dynamics, and the Wailers, Doug continued to play and write music,
sometimes sitting in with bands in the Spokane area. In the ‘70s he put the keyboards
in storage and began a career in broadcasting. Now, many years later, he's picked
up the bass and is rocking again.
