After high school I formed an original project called The Unheard. I was the singer/front man and one of the songwriters. We had the pleasure of opening up for many of my childhood heroes like Jani Lane from Warrant, Stephen Pearcy of Ratt, Firehouse, and Skid Row. That project landed airplay on 101.1 the WRIF as well as catching the ear of the legendary Bob Kean from Delphi Records in Los Angeles. Bob Kean worked with Richie Valens, Frank Zappa, and many other legends. The Unheard was offered a record deal with Delphi Records backed by Warner Brothers Distribution in 2003. (I still have the original contract).
I don’t have a favorite hair band tune since I love so many of the songs from the 80s. My favorite album is Guns N’ Roses’ “Appetite for Destruction”. I still listen to that album front to back on a regular basis. One of my favorite songs to play is Motley Crue’s “Kickstart My Heart” (it gets me pumped).
My all time favorite moment in RockStar was having my son Trevor on stage with me during “Welcome to the Jungle” at Harley Fest. His face was priceless!
A couple things that might surprise people is that I am actually a pretty good golfer (I have about a 12 handicap), I used to sell used cars, I was a gymnast in my younger years, and I am a huge Sammy Hagar fan. Hope to rock it with you all very soon.
