Coolest Thing I've Done: Hung out with Dimebag and got drunk. Got the CFH logo and Dime's autograph tatted on my right shoulder.

Most Embarrassing Moment: Broke a string at the Toy Tiger right in the middle of a song. Sounded horrible. I picked up my back up guitar and the input jack was screwed and just got a real bad popping/crackling sound. Needless to say the show was over. Didn't have the time to switch strings out.
