He was born in Kokomo, Indiana in 1947 and was performing in theater by the age of 13 as well as in a local Indiana band "Hog Honda & the Chain Guards." By age 15, he hosted his own radio show on WIOU and had hosted his own local television show by age 20.
His song "Love You Like I Never Loved Before" was a hit single in 1981, making it to #24 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
