Moth has been around for about 10-11 years. And I think it was a real haphazard thing. It was our first gig, and the band we were opening up for - he called me and asked me what the name of the band was. I told him and he didn't like it and he said, "I'm not going to put it on my flyer." And then I said, "Oh, what about Moth?" So that was it.
I made the decision way early on while I was in high school that this was what I wanted to do. And I dropped out of high school to pursue it. I put a three-piece punk band together and I was booking the tours. I was out there doing that whole circuit thing and I didn't have much of a choice. It was the one thing that I wanted to pursue in my life - it was the only thing that I wanted to do. I was so happy doing it - touring and sleeping on people's living room floors. I was having the time of my life. I never really got discouraged - sometimes I got confused but I never really got discouraged.
