Bad habits: eating chocolate (frozen from my freezer) every night. can't seem to stop it
What I'm listening to nowadays: Skrillex, Robin Trower, lots of local demos
Coolest thing I've done: our band was hired to play at a birthday party in Kansas this past year, so the guy sent his private jet to pick us up. We pulled up to his mansion and he had three zebras and a camel as pets in his side yard. Very surreal.
Most embarrassing moment: I'm not easily embarrassed at my age but when I was younger, playing with Spanky Lee, I thought I was cool and did a rock-n-roll spin across the stage. The mic cable wrapped around my ankles as tight as could be, I fell in front of all of my peers; felt foolish, didn't know how to laugh it off. Needless to say I use a wireless now .
Who do you love: my wife, my kids, family, friends, and Jesus!!
When/where did you first get some: Get some what? Chocolate? My freezer!!
