Thanks to all the fans that have supported us over the years without you we would not be able to sustain the band. I know that when we finally get to a point to where we can afford it we would love to do some free concerts and give back to all the fans. Hopefully that day will be soon!
As for me, I spend most of my time songwriting, recording music and playing guitar which I began at age ten. From the moment I picked up the guitar I knew that I would be playing it for the rest of my life. Initially I played left-handed but was forced to switch to right-handed playing when an accident took the tip of my right index finger.
My first memory of Dexter Freebish goes back to 1995 when Chris and I played together at a house party in Austin during a late night jam session that lasted into the wee hours of the morning. It wasn't until 3 weeks later we ran into each other in the bathroom at the once famous now defunct Steamboat Club in Austin. We reintroduced ourselves, remembered each other from the party and called each other the next day. Soon after that the intial form of Dexter Freebish was created.
Other things I like to do include recording bands, water skiing, billiards, hanging out at Lake Travis in Austin with my friends, disc golfing, listening to new music and spending time with the love of my life, Amy.
My most embarrasing moment was when we played the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland and Yoko Ono was watching us. I was supposed to start the set off but my guitar was not working properly and I was standing there on stage like a deer in headlights. After fumbling through my equipment on stage I finally got my guitar to work.
My favorite song would have to be Maybe I'm amazed by Paul McCartney it has some of the best singing in the world!
Favorite lyric: "I get by with a little help from my friends" Ringo Starr. Peace...
