(Originally used a fictitious name)
Born: December 22, 1947
Where: Stockton, California
Why: Not sure.
Raven purchased his first guitar when he was 12 years old. He promptly broke it and started playing cornet and trumpet in the school marching band.
At 16 he played French horn for a semester then gave it up till he was 30.
At the age of 30 he bought a silver flute from a friend and found the love of his musical life.
At that time he also purchased a guitar so that he could sing and play music at the same time.
Not an easy task for anyone and almost impossible on the flute.
Oh yeah, Raven has also ridden a bicycle across the United States 26 times:.
