|I was born to suffer --- a lifelong Cubs fan.
I, like Scott could read by age 3.
I knew all the words to all the songs from [i]Man Of La Mancha[/i] by age 2. So that was my first movie, strangea choice as that may be. (Aaaaah, Sophia as Dulcinea!)
When I caught myself playing air guitar to Judas Priest's "Heading Out To the Highway" in front of my full-length mirror at age 13, I knew that I wanted to learn for real. Quit my lessons after 6 months and proceeded to learn by jamming along with my records, first it was to The Beatles, Stones, and Santana. Then I discovered the Meat Puppets and the world opened from there. No I learned by jamming along to the Pups, Television, and The Replacements.
After several bands and 15 years of playing my own songs, I finally released a proper albu, with my band Hop On Pop. YAY!
But even more than that I am proud of my family -- wife and 2 amazing little boys. (The oldest just got [i]his[/i] first Strat for Christmas last year!) And the cycle goes on...
