I started to love music at a very young age in the late eighties and early nineties. Getting into MC Hammer, Deaf Leopard, Michael Jackson, New Kids On The Block, etc. All the big name people of my youth, yes some are corny but hey, I was a kid. Then I progressed into my teenage years in the late 90s to Silverchair, Staind, Papa Roach, Bush, Foo Fighters, etc.
Started to going to concerts every weekend in High School with my fake ID, not to drink, but to just get into the 18+ places. Yes I drink but that was not my main reason for the ID, well it was my second reason. ;-) During that time, I started an Alternative Rock band in Dallas as the lead singer. Had a full band for over 4 years. Played the big Battle of The Bands show for Our area. I have currently seen over 200+ concerts over the years in places such as Dallas, TX to Philadelphia, Pa to NYC and all the way to London, England.
Music is my passion and I love it with all my heart.
I worked for South By Southwest in Austin, TX for over 4 years while in college and loved every moment of that experience. Hundreds of bands in one city for a whole week of back to back concerts. No way of beating those times.
So, now Im listening to bands like Chevelle, 30 Seconds To Mars, Crossfade, Evans Blue, Killswitch Engage, Five Finger Death Punch, Breaking Benjamin, The Used, TV On The Radio, Keane, Athlete, Sick Puppies, Anberlin, Skillet, Jimmy Eat World, etc.
Music . . . It is our life force.
