Well, I was actually just finishing up at College back in 1997, and I'd been writing a lot of songs for a band. All the years of studying music and playing classical guitar just started weighing on me, and I wanted to do something different, so I started writing songs. At first I actually started writing music on piano. I was taking piano classes and I had to. I wanted to start a band really bad, and about a year before I finished college, I hooked up with a singer that I knew from high school.
I swim and play basketball and lift weights and run and all that crap. Or I mountainbike and things like that. I don't watch too much TV or anything, but a lot of physical activities. Because I've had a lot of tendonitis in my wrists and my shoulders after years of classical guitar and weightlifting and all that stuff.
