People who use the word "your" in the place of "you're"
My step-father was a guitar picker. I took piano lessons at an early age. It wasn't until I was 18 and in the Navy that I took up playing bass. I've been playing ever since.
BC Rich, Washburn, Fender, & Epiphone basses. Peavey and Carvin amps and cabinets. Shure wireless. Dunlop picks.
Idols in music:
Steve Harris (bassist for Iron Maiden). Dee Snider & Dave Mustaine. Bret Micahels for overcomming diabetes (like me) and still rockin'
Place you would like to go:
Europe in general. Nice big tour! Australia too.
What makes you laugh:
I have a very dry sense of humor. The cruder the better.

All time top 5 metal albums:
Megadeth - Rust In Peace

Personal highlight with Angelical Tears:
Oh the long road trips and unbearing funk and stench!

Preparation for a show:
Worst nightmare on stage:
I broke a string and didn't have a backup.
Worst nightmare in general:
Going to work everyday
Favorite Angelical Tears song:
Probably "Queen of Hearts" though I really like "Another Day" and "Hate" a lot.
Currently it's Kamelot. But Megadeth, Twisted Sister, Nighwish, Lacuna Coil, and Delain are still near and dear to my heart.
The Lord of the Rings. I also like Tom Clancy novels.
With alcohol, Guiness. Without, Diet Pepsi.
Mexican food. And Brats!
Empire Strikes Back followed closely by The Big Lebowski.
Favorite TV show:
I've been binge watching Prison Break, though being an ex-US Navy sailor, I really enjoy The Last Ship.
Dumbest question you have ever been asked:
"You want that super sized?" Look at my fat ass! Of course I do!
