The three of us have known each other since we could walk. We haven't always grown up together but our paths have always crossed for some reason. All late bloomers none of us really started to play our instruments until our late teens early 20's.
I remember borrowing a guitar about a month before grad so that I could learn 'Time of Your Life' by Green Day. Four hours a day after school and I was well on my way to the fundementals. My family then gave me my first guitar as a birthday present a month later (best present ever). My passion for music then grew tenfold. Instead of listening to Beyonce or Kanye West like the rest of my friends I started listening to the 'classics', and oh man were they ever good! From Clapton to Dylan, my appreciation for 'real' music grew and grew. Also I became good friends with one called Casey. His tastes in music was so much different from mine, but had a strong influence; The heavily distorted rhythm guitar of Chevelle, and soundtracks to our lives from 30 Seconds to Mars was welcomed with open ears, and has made me the artist I am today. - Rob
I started playing bass in grade 12 when the opportunity to join a guitar/band class came up. I bought my bass and amp off my big bro clint after his stint with it didnt work out (its complicated, dont ask). Over the months in school i learned a few tunes and could officially tell people i 'slappa da bass mon!' - great accomplishment. Now i bring my amateur skills to Why Bob. - Jeff
