How long on Instrument: Been singing since I was a kid.

Equipment: Shure mics

Influences: I really do listen to all music, anything that has soul influences me. Life in general, people, movies. I am a student of human nature.

First Gig: Jake and Elwood's, now Saints. I forget who was on the bill with us.

Favorite food: ALL OF IT/

Favorite place: Anywhere with a beach/

Bad habits: Smoking, drugs, dirty sex.

What I'm listening to nowadays: Lamb of God - "wrath", Thomas Medicine, Isis. I just got a copy of some old-school Louisville - Sancred (haven't heard it in years, and still love it just as much.)

Coolest thing I've done: The coolest thing I've done is tour half of this country and meet people from every walk of life. It is by far the best thing you could ever do - travel and rock!

Most embarrassing moment: We (itc) played a show at Coyote's once upon a time, and I happened to drink enough Jägermeister to supply a small village. I blacked out for the last half-hour of the set, forgot all the words and told the whole crowd to go f**k themselves. I guess that's the most embarrassing, but I really don't remember much of it.

Who do you love: I love my family more than anything in the world and my true friends.

When/where did you first get some: I was a late bloomer. I think i was 17 and my girl at the time and I got a hotel room. probably isn't the most exciting story, but all the sexual craziness came with years of practice.
