Great topic! Ok I'll bite...

I've had a day job since I was 17. The only time I didn't was when White Sister opened for FM for a few weeks in 1987, and when Tattoo Rodeo toured with Bad Company and Damn Yankees in 1991...three months of livin the dream! 400 bucks a week plus 20 a day for food. We used to eat at the venues (5000-10000 seaters back then) and had drinks and cereal on the rider so we could take it on the bus. It was a game to NOT spend the big 20 bucks a day! In 1997 I took a job with Walt Disney Imagineering building ride vehicles and animatronics for the Disney parks...spent 5 years there. For the last 11 plus years I've been a Production manager at a design and prototyping company. Hey, someone has to pay the mortgage and college bills! These days I stay up late (midnight now here in the LA area) and write/record in my little home studio, taking breaks to check out melodicrock.com.

You should be hearing some of this stuff soon BTW...stay tuned!
