bands that i've been in. BUILT TO LAST / RED TAPE

San Diego hardcore 1997

BUILT TO LAST was a great band that I stepped into for a year or so. We played straight up hardcore and toured the U.S. playing everywhere from New Jersey to Seatlle. A great time......

Resurrection A.D. Records was cool enough to rent us a van and set up a full U.S. tour. The shows were great. Much thanks to A.J.

Built to Last was a great time. All the places we played, all the people I met..............

RED TAPE-Fla. 1995 This band was just plain fun. We played superfast power punk/hardcore. Lots of parties and shows.....laughing all the way.....

I played drums in this band. Towards the end, we found another drummer and at our last show at FSU, our new drummer was in the audience while we were playing yelling "the drummer sucks!!!". We stopped after about 8 songs and I yelled back "Why don't you come up and try it jerk!". He came up and got behind the drum kit and I grabbed my guitar and we finished the set. The audience had no idea what happened. Too funny.

In the midwest, in the middle of the night, we met Goldberg. He was with the Steiner bros after a match. He was real cool. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

We played with tons of great bands. Ten Yard Fight, Fastbreak, Strife.....
