He made a guitar solo album in Japan for Sony/CBS: Down On The Road By The Beach accompanied by a photo book. He has said "I just loved writing music and playing guitar. When all that came to a close for various reasons I still took my guitar with me where ever I went. In the 80’s I made a guitar album in Japan and also played on some french tv commercials and actually had a hit on a record in France by the singer Valli which I co-produced and played guitar on. I am still working on playing guitar and writing music."
