He is 15, but I would have been 13 or 14. The same slender profile, me maybe a Ramones hoodie. No trucker hat, just some aqua net straightened bangs to cover my face. I wanted to appear menacing, Glenn Danzig like. He has style of his own, with his pristine white sneaks, Levis and Bass Pro Shop trucker hat. Why Bass Pro? It’s his sponsor. No, not really- but really. My sponsor? YETI. Really? No, but sometimes.
Punk Rock never dies, just changes form.
He is his own though our lives ripple and merge at times. This is one of those times.
Here He is at Amoeba Records last month. Wish I had this photo of me at Beggar’s Banquet in Buena Park.
Looking at his photo, I am seeing me. Except he is new and improved, hopefully without all the hang ups.
Like a time machine- here we both are.
