MUSICAL BACKGROUND: Living in Bosnia as a child, I was forced to play spoons to entertain the high priestess. After a night of bad milk, my solo was left something to be desired so she instructed me to learn the guitar. "Smoke on the Water" being the first guitar lick I ever learned got me a job at 10 years old working for the circus. By day, I would scoop elephant poop and by night I would entertain the freaks with my renditions of Frank Zappa, Neil Diamond and Liberace. Going home one day on the bus, I ran into this wierdo who asked me about the case I had that looked like a guitar. Little did he know it was actualy a collection of 9 mm revolvers but he asked me if I played guitar anyways. I replied yes, and that is how I met The Dawgs.
BEST KNOWN FOR SAYING: "Was I supposed to bring my guitar?"

MOST LIKELY TO ORDER: Have you got a veggie plate?? No? Then I'll have the chili.
ROLE WITH THE BAND: Duct Tape Boy, Playstation and Sega Representative and Vice President in charge of Lopez Transportation.
MOST EMBARASSING MOMENT ON STAGE: That time I just, like, totally forgot where I was. Oh yeah, and the time my Digitech didn't work.
