Bill Rocks

Seriously. He says "Playing guitar is relaxing for me. I enjoy working on tunes together with my guys. I frequently play with a client, a couple of golfing buddies, and a few others.  I primarily play a six-string electric guitar, but I have two six string acoustic electrics, a twelve string acoustic electric, and then three purely electrics."

He goes on to explain "I learned to play guitar in my bedroom when I was 14 years old. I stole my sister's guitar and taught myself to play it. At the time, I was playing violin, so I had some musical experience, but am primarily self-taught."

And when he's not strumming away? "I also play lacrosse with my team- we're called the 'Old Goats.' I played in college and I used to be good, but now I enjoy a fun bunch of guys. We run slow, and try to remember what we did when we were younger, without having a heart attack."  That's music to his family's ears.

"I like to be proactive with clients to address legal issues on the front end of business transactions.  Although the legal tail should not wag the business dog, a little extra legal protection up front usually saves a lot of potential expense on the back end when the deal goes south."
