So this is pretty interesting. Basically what happened, is I grew up in Hawaii with this kid named Braxton who had been playing in punk bands growing up there. I moved to california and he would aim me all the time asking how it was, and i was like, "its amazing, you can see so many bands everynight" because in hawaii we got maybe 2 really good bands a year and that was that. so long story short, he came to So Cal and started going to an art/music school where he met Zach. Zach had just left Saosin due to some personal reasons and during this moment, i met Ray Brady who was a guitar player for Jessica Simspon and was also doing stuff with the black eyed peas. We became friends and he offered to produce some of our demo stuff and it just so happened that Jessica's show became a huge hit, and Ashlee wanted to do a group and Geffen offered to back it. Ray called me up asking if I knew of any good guitar and bass players. The first thing that came to my mind was Braxton & Zach. They auditioned, and 1 week later got the job. Braxton & Zach both basically got out of school and now are touring full time with Ashlee and getting paid decent, but experiencing alot of things they would have never otherwise so its pretty cool they got the gig.... and thats how it happened. they lived happily ever after.... the end.
did anyone see the usc game? heavy
