I usually write about the older days but this will be a more recent story about a friend I met during the time period of my later band ear2ear. I met @floridafrank at a west coast worldwide show when #ringworm was playing. This was my first time seeing them and they were amazing with frank on guitar. Both him and furnace were really cool and easy to talk to. Fast forward a while and he was playing with terror and we rode together back from the show. During the ride we were talking about favorite bands and records and when I said humanity is the devil by #integrity was a fav of mine, well of course he played on it. The last time we hung out was at a #terror show at slims. It was an actin packed show with some brawling in the streets. Later I was not surprised to hear he was the new guitar player in the mighty #hatebreed. Some people just always seem to be in the right place at the right time. He has played in many of the most important hardcore/metal crossover bands of recent history and I could not be happier for all his success and the fact that I can call him a friend. All the best in the new year buddy and please keep rockin for all of us to hear.
