i sing and play guitar in The Swellers. I tour all over the world. When I'm home, I like to record/produce bands in my studio. I enjoy spicy food, free thought, and other assorted punk things.
There wasn’t any big event that changed my mind or convinced me in any way.. I just think it’s how I am. Never had the need for anything “extra”. It’s simple.. smoking looks and smells gross.. drinking smells gross and makes people act kinda weird sometimes. I just prefer keeping a clear signal at all times. I think its my responsibility to use my brain to it’s fullest, real potential.
Amazing how “regular people” think it’s absolutely absurd that I don’t use any substances. It knocks people off of their feet sometimes to hear that a dude in a band stays sober. To me, I think it’s wild that it’s the norm to put something in your body to alter your perception and attitude. Sci-Fi, really. Do what you want, just think of your family and friends.
I think there’s a lot to say and it’s important for me to open my big mouth a little more often. I guess stay tuned!
I kinda forgot I had one of these. Don’t really have the time or patience to get on here. Find me on twitter or facebook and that might be a better option to find out what I’ve been up to. Or follow Jonathan’s blog closely, and chances are, we’re doing the same stuff!
<3 ya. No, fuck that, I don’t say that.
ernie ball music man albert lee!!! that’s my main live and studio guitar. on the record, that was a marshall jmp 50watt i think, cranked. live i’ve been using a mesa boogie mark V and it’s awesome!
heavily, heavily, heavily by both. nirvana is the reason a lot of us started to play music. foo fighters are the reason we probably STILL have faith in music. we’ll see you in ireland soon, hopefully!
