High School Reunion: Hooter Hicks (1998-2002)
It seems like my high school years were ages ago. My music selection has played a pivotal role in my life, as I am sure it has for most, but many of my fondest high school memories revolved around music. With the likes of skate punk/hardcore/ska from the early age of seven, of which I owe to my older brothers. While the rest of my classmates were enjoying the latest from Nelly and Jay-Z, I was destroying my eardrums with the sounds of Face to Face, Stretch Arm Strong, and Mustard Plug. I took this music to heart and created a ska punk band with one of my brothers and a few friends, which gained some popularity in my local area. Since then not a lot has changed in my choice of music.
