But seriously, that is true and when Jesse started the band I was barely a teenager and was still learning how to play. And yes that is when I replaced him at Hal's , I was 12. I played in a few rock bands in high school as a drummer and since I was taught by Hirohito Hogg he had me play bass to his drumming. This winter I took a job in MA and when Jesse heard about it he had me sit in with him, Stevie Joe and others and I'm playing bass. Having a lot of fun playing with Jesse, it's really ideal and special for me. From sneaking into a practice to listen and now being part of the band I am blessed.
