Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music
So, I've written a book. Having entertained the idea for years, and even offered a few questionable opportunities (';It's a piece of cake!
Just do four hours of interviews, find someone else to write it, put your face on the cover, and voila!'), I have decided to write these stories just as I have always done, in my own hand.
The joy that I have felt from chronicling these tales is not unlike listening back to a song that I've recorded and can't wait to share with the world, or reading a primitive journal entry from a stained notebook, or even hearing my voice bounce between the Kiss posters on my wall as a child. This certainly doesn't mean that I'm quitting my day job, but it does give me a place to shed a little light on what it's like to be a kid from Springfield, Virginia, walking through life while living out the crazy dreams I had as young musician.
From hitting the road with Scream at 18 years old, to my time inNirvanaand theFoo Fighters, jamming withIggy Popor playing at the Academy Awards or dancing withAC/DCand the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, drumming forTom Pettyor meetingSir Paul McCartneyat Royal Albert Hall, bedtime stories withJoan Jettor a chance meeting withLittle Richard, to flying halfway around the world for one epic night with my daughtersthe list goes on.I look forward to focusing the lens through which I see these memories a little sharper for you with much excitement.
