Accomplishment: Being happily married to my wife Kim and raising our 2 awesome sons Brian and Zach.
My first (and last) time I wore white pants to high school (it was in the 80s and I was trying to pull off the Miami Vice look). I took a public bus to school and happened to sit on a seat with graffiti on it. Apparently the hotness of my butt crack combined with the fact that the artist used a non-permanent red marker resulted in my walking around with a red streak going up the butt crack of my pants for an entire day. Screw Don Johnson and his stupid white pants. I'm still embarrassed.
Some Favorite Memories (personal):
Growing up - playing with my neighborhood buddies. In grade school - going up north with my family. In high school we pulled a prank where we recorded ‘porno sounds’ on a cassette tape and played it full volume on a boom box locked inside of a locker. It was the most hilarious 10 minutes you ever heard (until the janitor cut the lock and turned off the tape) and the looks on teachers faces was priceless! Now being married with kids I feel like I am living in a comedy movie – funny stuff is happening all the time.
Obviously shows like Summerfest and our Halloween shows, but my favorite memories are about the different people I’ve met and the different situations related to being in a band. Many of my favorite quotes came about because of being in a band, sayings like ‘Do you always sing like that?’,
‘Just because you own an instrument does not mean you are a musician, and 'just because you get together and play does not make you a
band’, and ’Don’t you guys own a tuner?’.
Any day where my family, relatives and friends are doing ok.

The day my son crapped in a semi truck wheel rim and cleaned up with a corn dog wrapper. I’m not going into details on this one, but it was funny.
