Louisville Rock Closeup
By Eddy Metal
Troy Ford

Name: Troy Ford

Age: I was hatched in 1673, making me 336 years old.

Instrument: DRUMS, and anything I can beat on!

Band/Former bands: I've played from here to L.A. with such bands as LosAngels, Concrete Peach, Blue Collar, The Tim Morrow Band, Thorn, Witchburn, and now the mighty BONEJINN.

How long on instrument: I've been playing drums now for 324 years and my arms are starting to get a little tired! Just kidding! My arms arent tired.

Equipment: I play a custom kit, built by the man himself and drum guru, Mr. John Hayes.

Influences: KISS, Motley Crue, The Greatful Dead, Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa and Benny Goodman, Motzart.....there's just so many. I once partied with Motzart in a quaint little cafe outside Vienna. I couldn't have been but 15 at the time. I do remember he was a charming fellow.

My first gig: The illustrious and legendary TOY TIGER! (R.I.P. TIGER)

Hobbies: I like to run a good marathon, maybe start an intense game of underwater pumpkin smashing. Also, talking is a fun hobby almost anyone can get into.

Favorite movies: Any classic B&W horror films. I love the originals!

Favorite food: Pound of flesh.

Favorite place: ON STAGE!

Bad habits: Do you want the old edition or the revised edition?

What I'm listening to now: N.W.A. Straight outta Compton, some Tesla, Prince, Soundtrack to Queen of the Damned, and Billie Holliday. That's what I'm rockin' in my 5-disc.

Coolest thing I've ever done: Travel, playing music. And I'm still doing it!!!!!

Most embarrassing moment: That's easy ... I lost my swimming trunks in the wave pool in Las Vegas. It wasn't bad in the pool but when it came time to get out....well, that was a horse of a different color (and size). To this day, I have never recovered those trunks, and I'm sure the people that were there and witnessed the event are still recovering from laughter.

Who do I love: Calm down ladies. It's just my drums!

When /where did I first get some: Looking back on it, I don't even want to tell the story, however sweet (and it was). These two girls in Las Vegas cornered me in a public restroom outside the pool house of an apartment complex. That was the day my eyes truly opened. Oh, the holy glory of it all! Love them good times!
