I didn’t fit anywhere in 1985 high school. Nerds and geeks were cooler than me. I was something else entirely. I was a Christian youth group kid. But that’s not all…
I wanted to be in a kick ass rock band.
Back then I got my first taste of both being in a band and promoting a show for others to come to. From then on it would be a drug to me. I would also get my first experience in being at odds with Christians and Church which would prove to be very motivating for me in the future.
After high school I watched my dreams of being a rockstar dashed to pieces. So I loaded up my truck from my beloved southern California and headed to what might as well have been another planet…… Portland, Oregon.
