Christian Death Quotes
Yes, actually I was pretty amazed by the amount of stuff my parents put up with while I was living in their house. They had experienced all that before with older brothers and sisters, so it was fairly strict. The fear-of-God thing was pretty set and I blindly followed it until I reached a certain age.

I think I began getting really influenced by that whole punk scene around the age of 13 or 14-I went through that whole thing like the shaved head.

So near the end of that period we did a few shows in L.A. and met up with Valour. His band had opened a couple of shows for us. Then I started seeing him kind of socially.
