Full of Infinite Possibilities.
I was an overweight, insecure kid whose parents divorced when I was nine. Like most kids, I wanted to be popular, athletic and smart; in reality, I was awkward, could not throw or hit a ball, and I was average in school.
From an early age, I was fascinated with alcohol. Whether hounding my father for sips of his beer, or begging for a small glass of wine on special occasions, my preoccupation was not normal.
I discovered playing the drums, and with it, partying. In my teens, I started drumming in bands, playing in bars on school nights and being paid in drinks. Drinking and getting high became an inseparable part of my music. I was a daily pot smoker and took so-called recreational drugs—cocaine, mescaline, acid, psilocybin, and others—whenever I could. I played in a string of bands through my 20s.
I stumbled into the medical field, working in operating rooms as a surgical technician. This was the “day job” I would leave when my music career took off.
My existence was a succession of problems due to my substance abuse. Instead of achieving success as a drummer and quitting that day job, I struggled as my life began to spiral down. My music suffered and bands fired me. My livelihood was in jeopardy, and my relationships were hollow shells. By the time I was 30, my life was circling the drain.
