I have been in bands a long time. And I love to write.
Anything you want to know?
Anything at all?
I would appreciate it if you could ask me to write something, if you have a question or a curiousness to what being in a band on the road, writing songs, vomiting from a moving van in the rain in Seattle, writing a hit song, having people hate you, having people love you, recording studios, psychotic breakdowns on the road, industry people and their suits and smiles.. If any of that interests you and makes you curious, I would love to hear.
Bands I have played in.
- Animosity wanted to be punk rock, settled for a garage band from Irvine (1983-86)
- The Shaman doors-ish jam-ish rock mix (1986-87)
- The Shrinky Dinx heavy metal beginnings of Sugar Ray (1988-1995)
- The Weirdos I replaced Zander Schloss for their 1990 tour opening for Circle Jerks 20th anniversary tour (1990-1991)
- Sugar Ray changed our name after the Dinx got a record deal with Atlantic Records in 1994 (1994-present)
- The Special Goodness played bass as power trio with Pat Wilson & Atom Willard for rehearsals, a few local shows, and a tour on second stage with Weezer & Dashboard Confessional (1999-2000)
