    It's been a dream of mine to play rock in front of people. After college was just bitter and stupid about it and just gave up.

    Then I met a dude at work. Very nice guy. Guitar player who'd been in several bands. He died unexpectedly. After his funeral I randomly drove around town and ended up at the music store. The owner knew the guy and sold him his first guitar. We talked for hours. I opened up to this stranger about music, my dreams and frustrations, things I'd never told anyone. He talked me into digging my instruments back out. Soon after I put an ad on his cork board. Now I'm playing with people, trying to make something happen, and it's been amazing.
