Jack Bruno was just 16 when his rock band, Apple Pie Motherhood Band, landed a record deal with Atlantic. The band was based in Boston and drove down to New York to record there, and even after the two albums were completed Jack decided to stay. He later moved to Los Angeles in the mid 1970s where he met and played with a large and diverse group of musicians. Among the artists he performed with over his long career are Elton John, Joe Cocker (Jack plays drums on his album Have a Little Faith) and Tina Turner. His gig with Tina lasted 28 years and included both recordings and live performances.
