Come senators, congressmen
please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
will be he who has stalled
The battle outside and it’s ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows
and rattle your walls
For the times
they are a-changin’

—Bob Dylan

To see books grouped by category, hover over “Electro Books” at the top of the page and choose a category. 

We call them Electro Books to honor my dear departed friend, the guitar player in the group Spirit—Randy California. Randy would name a musical jam using the city we were playing in. For example Tampa Jam Electro Jam. 

Also our PDF books have links to the world via the Internet, making them Electro too.

74 Songs Written And Recorded (full length)

Groups I formed: Island, Menage, Ohmlad’s Heider Band

To listen to any recording, hover over OhmLad Music (at the top of the page) then click a name (other people’s music) or a year (my music). 

Flash was the best music player in the world. Why did Adobe kill Flash and cripple all music websites? No one knows. So at OhmLad Music (and everywhere else) it’s one song at a time, now. Also, Adobe stopped making Reader for Linux in 2013. Linux lets you escape the malware and spyware built into Windows 10. Adobe released a toxic “update” for Reader that drove users crazy because it crippled legal/letter automatic paper bin selection. Let them know. Boycott Adobe.

With Frank Zappa (next to the drummer, behind Ruth Underwood)

With Spirit (bass and vocals)

With Ike & Tina (funky rhythm guitar)

With Menage (rhythm/lead guitar, vocals)

When you wish upon a star makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come . . . to . . . you
If your heart is in your dreams . . . no request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star as lovers do

Fate is kind . . . she brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of . . . their secret longings

Like a bolt out of the blue fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star your dreams . . . come . . . true
