We the People Quotes
My first memory of getting interested was because of my uncle, who was a brilliant guitarist in the Chet Atkins sound. He was incredible, and when I heard him play I got "goose bumps." From then on, I just knew that I had to create those sounds. I thought what a wonderful feeling it would be for me if I could make others feel the same way that he made me feel. My first electric guitar was a Gibson Melody Maker single-pickup, but my first ever guitar was one that my Dad bought for me from Sears. I think he paid around $15.00 for it brand new!
The first band that I played in was a three piece called The Vibrations. We had a piano (a real one!), one rhythm guitar (me), and one lead guitar ([by]an incredible guitarist named Ron Skinner, who later formed the band called The Nation Rocking Shadows). I learned a lot from him, but we later became rivals. Next came a wild and crazy, college frat-party band called The Coachmen. I basically grew up in this band, and had the most fun in my life. I was the youngest member, and we did everything from The Kingston Trio to James Brown. Then, several members of the Nation Rocking Shadows defected, and I joined them to become The Trademarks. I later defected from them, and joined a few members of the Offbeats, and we became We The People. And the rest is now history.
