What was high school like?
[What year was it?]
[What were your three favorite bands?]
Black Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult, Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin ... uh, I guess that's four, I could go on
[What was your favorite outfit?]
I really don't recall ... probably jeans and a rugby shirt
[What was up with your hair?]
Ah ... we have a visual:
[Who were your best friends?]
Man, that's a long time ago ... Lansing, Cameron, Mike, Warren ... I may be forgetting some!
[What did you do after school?]
Got drunk/stoned and listened to tunes ... unless it was the summer, when I worked.
[Did you take the bus?]
Either the #22 or the #36 ... the same ones I typically take now! I could have walked, but it was 2-3 miles.
[Who did you have a crush on?]
Geez ... how am I supposed to remember? I can picture some gals, but am having a hard time coming up with any names ... ah, Nancy, Megan, and ... dang! what was her name?
[Did you fight with your parents?]
My Dad died when I was 2, so it was just my Mom ... my Mom and I are so much alike that it was constant conflict ... we really never got over that until the last few years of her life.
[Who did you have a CELEBRITY crush on?]
Grace Slick comes to mind ... Suzy Quatro ... hmmm ... dunno.
[Did you smoke cigarettes?]
Nope ... a good thing too, given my "addictive personality", I'd be a 10-pack a day user!
[Did you lug all of your books around in your backpack all day because you were too nervous to find your locker?]
I lived out of my locker ... what's to be nervous about?
[Did you have a 'clique'?]
I guess you could call them a clique ... it was the heavy drinkers, the metal heads, the military history buffs, the sci-fi geeks, the theater kids, etc. ... pretty much an "eclectic outsider" mix.
[Did you have "The Max" like Zach Kelly and Slater?]
I have NO IDEA what this is referring to!
[Admit it, were you popular?]
No. I was a "freak", had good grades, didn't get in much trouble, but was big, morbid and scary.
[Who did you want to be just like?]
Robert DeGrimston (compare our pics).
[What did you want to be when you grew up?]
I wanted to be some sort of Cult Leader!
[Where did you think you'd be at the age you are now?]
Probably dead. Heck, the "smart money" was always on my not living to see 30!
