1997 or 1998...I think this was the first photo we ever took together. We had just told Chester that we wanted him to join the band. He said he was ready to move out from Arizona to L.A. We went to a pizza place near UCLA to hang out and talk about what to do next. The band was called Xero at the time, and we probably had less than a half a dozen songs. No flame tattoos yet, no red hair yet, most of us were still in college.
Doodle challenge with the kids today. The theme was "draw a unique cat." Wish I could say that my "businessman fairy cat" was the winner. It got beat by the "Evil glowing superhero bad cat with laser eyes."
