My self-summary
About me? ufff...let's see where to begin...

It was a dark and stormy, wait. That's a different story.

I'm not perfect...not even close. I am also not seeking perfection.

Music has been a big part of my life since I was about 5 or 6. KISS was my first favorite band; oddly enough I've never seen them live. I love going to concerts and try to see as many as I can. I see a lot of shows. I'd really like someone who also loves live music and likes to go out a lot. Journey is later this week! (5/22 in San Antonio). While metal/hard rock are my faves, my tastes are all over the place. I'm also a bit of a 70s/80s music trivia buff.

Since tattoos seem to be important to some, yes, I have them...several. Well over 100 hours worth of work. Most of them you won't see unless I am in shorts or shirtless. Lower arms kept bare to preserve my career.

Hablas espanol? Hablame!
What I’m doing with my life
the 4 Ws: working, walking, writing and (w)rocking out with my new band Eternal Champion. We only play a couple of times a year and just played in Chicago in April.
I’m really good at
My job, trivia (especially 70s/80s rock and pop culture), reading people.
The first things people usually notice about me
my awesomeness. *cough*BS*cough*

for whatever reason, people seem to like my beard
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books - all quiet on the western front, rock and roll autobiographies, Bukowski, Michael Moorcock

movies - sands of iwo jima, river's edge, stoned age, planet of the apes, classic horror (omen, exorcist, frankenstein, hammer films), b/w war movies (anything on TCM), anything with John Wayne, Bogart or Gregory Peck.

music - i'm all over the map, but i lean towards the heavier side of 80s metal, none of that hair band crap. Musical preference is not a deal breaker for me, just be in to something that's not dubstep.
Here are some bands that I love (read: obsess over):
Iron Maiden
Rolling Stones
Fates Warning (1st 3 albums only)
Al Dimeola
Men At Work
Thin Lizzy

food - sushi, mexican, cooking at home
The six things I could never do without
concerts - here's what I've seen so far, not including local bands:
black t-shirts
blue jeans
the sun
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My recently departed cat
Upcoming concerts
Work, but only when I'm at work
The beach...and the desert...desolate destinations
Heading to Spain and South America
On a typical Friday night I am
There are no typical Friday nights. But sometimes you can find me either downtown checking out bands, at dinner with friends, a movie or home playing poker or just relaxing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In the summer and fall of 1997, I played congas/percussion in a Jimmy Buffett cover band. ugh.
You should message me if
- you're looking for an honest, self-sufficient man who has his act together
- you're into seeing live music often
- your favorite band isn't Nickelback

and please be creative when/if you message me. just a "hello" or "hi" doesn't cut it. strike up a conversation.
