Brian Lee Tucker is a former bartender, house painter, and a "late-blooming hippie," whose mother gave birth to him on the way to the Woodstock music festival on August 15th, 1969. Needless to say, he didn't make it to Woodstock, but he made up for it later by forming his first band, Yellow Moon, at the tender age of twelve years old, with his mother, Karina, and his father, Jackson, on backing vocals and guitar. Influenced by the mellow, smooth sounds of bands like the Mamas and the Papas, the Byrds, and singers like Bob Dylan and Gordon Lightfoot, he created a signature sound all his own, a folk-ish, soft rock style that made him a home town institution around San Fransisco in the early eighties. Staying true to his roots, he is still an avid fan of the classic 60s and 70s pop culture, as well as the classic literature of such noted writers as Harper Lee, J.D. Salinger, and rebel writers like the late Hunter S. Thompson. A fledgling writer and poet, he is currently at work on his first book of fictional stories. Also a hardcore true crime buff, he is currently at work on another true crime book LEATHER APRON, about Jack the Ripper.
