"I remember finding comic books and horror movies as an escape from the gloom of life. Growing up was especially difficult for me. Going to a small school in the middle of nowhere makes outcasts feel even more isolated. I found refuge in music like Eminem, My Chemical Romance, and The Used. I also fell in love with comic books and horror movies. I could relate to Spider-Man and his problems. Horror movies were cool because of blood, guts, girls, and how over-the-top some of them could get.
When I was 17 I, unfortunately, came down with an autoimmune disease that kept me out of most my senior year. I found out there is no cure & I would be on medication/have this disease my whole life. I would lay in bed or at the doctors most my days watching crazy horror movies, reading comic books, & listening to my favorite music to get me mentally through.
Ever since I was a child I wanted to sing in a band. I was way more aware life is clearly too short & you never know what may happen to you.
So, in 2008 I started One Last Shot.
