FLYER7747

biography



Ralph (a.k.a. Flyer7747, Born2rock) was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1956 & raised
in Baltimore, Maryland... U.S.A. He began playing music at
the age of 15. He has played in numerous bands doing cover
songs.
 
     He began writing lyrics around the same time as he began
playing. He lived with his grandparent from age of 6 and has
been married & divorced twice. He has a 30 yr old son.
Ralph lives in Buffalo, New York.
 
      On the more personal note he was a Baseball and
Football athlete. He played Baseball for the Army team while
he was stationed in Germany. He also played Semi Pro
Baseball. He was good but says ""not good enough to make
it to the Majors. But that's okay. Things have a reason for the
way they happen. I wasn't bitter about it at all.
Ralph says that has worked in homeless shelters helping out the homeless people.
"I make sandwiches for some of the homeless on occasion from my home
and hand them out.

          Ralph has had a great love for music for as long as
he can remember. "If you listen close to my lyrics you will learn more about me. I
write from the experiences I have been through in my life."
He plays Piano, Guitar & Bass. He is self
taught on all instruments.

       Ralph listens to a lot of different genres of music but is very fond of Classic-Rock,
Southern Rock & Country Rock & Country. You can hear a touch of the
Southern Rock style in his voice. He likes to compose write &
sing and has done a lot of collaborations with a numerous
amount of artists that he has met from Bandamp and other music sites where he is a member. 
"This is more or less a hobby for me" he says but does spend an
awful lot of time on music. He says that he "wouldn't have it
any other way"
 
       On listening, his deep & genuine love of music is
evident. A modest & humble man, he says "I don't except to
sell songs or become a rock star. I do it because I love music.
I love to write & sing."
He has written in excess of 100 songs & is the first to admit that he
often plays along with them & dosen't remember how
certain parts go. This open & dry humourous outlook on life
in general reflects subtely in his music which,  is
very much for the serious listener.

Thank You

You Want Thing's I Ain't Got_V2

June 14th, 2011 + 9:06 AM  ·  FLYER7747

ULI__Bass / Lead Guitar
Flyer__Rythm Guitar / Vocals / Lyrics / Composition

  I first recorded this song bout'3 year's ago. ULI & I have been working
on this collaboration for the past 2-3 days. It was a pain in the arse
trying to get the mix and the EQ'n down and we almost gave up lol.
Collaborations can be a difficult task. It takes a lot of patience. ULI
and I feel that this was the best recording we could have possibly
come up with. So we hope you enjoy the song.

Thank you, ULI, for giving up so much of your time & effort to this
collaboration. It was nice working with you. I look forward to
working with you in the future


"You Want Thing's I Ain't Got"

I give you diamond rings
and then I feel like
I've committed a sin
I keep giving you things
that I ain't got
I gave up my
Cuban Cigars
so you can drive around
in a fancy car
I keep giving you things
I have not

You want to be
a movie star
I drink from happy hour
until its last call
I give you things
but I need to stop
I cant afford to go to the beach
I cool off with
a water hose
you want things
that I just ain't got

you only know me
on payday
where the hell
is my runaway
train
I keep giving you things
I ain't got

Thank God for
rainy days
the phone's off the hook
But I'm not away
you want things
that I ain't got

I say things that
you want to hear
baby pass me a cold beer
I keep giving you things
that I just ain't got

I gave up my
Cuban Cigars
so you can drive around
in a fancy car
I keep giving you things
and I have not

I cant afford
to go to the beach
I cool off with a
water hose
you always want things
that I ain't got
