Greg started his career with the original Classics, a pop rock band formed in Jacksonville, Florida. He went to school with the lead singer, Dennis Yost, at Andrew Jackson High. After a name change to The Classics IV they became principally known for hits like "Spooky," "Stormy," and "Traces of Love," all of which have become cover standards. Unfortunately, Uncle Sam had other plans for Greg’s future, so he missed out on a lot of the good stuff when I got drafted, but at least he can say he got a taste of the limelight...and it was great while it lasted! He’s been gigging ever since and still lovin’ every minute of it!
