Welcome to the official Barry Williams' blog
My friends call me Barry. From time to time I also hear the name Greg. Yeah, as in Greg Brady. The Brady Bunch represents a fun time in my life. But it’s only part of the story. There’s more to say and that’s what The Greg Brady Project is all about – a place to say it.

Q: [by mischoulon] As a child, did you own a horse named Yah Tah Hey (or something like that)?

A: Yes a Quarter horse mare named Yateha which means ’hello’ in Navajo.
