Do you and Dave Brownsound ever talk anymore?

yes. we talk quite a bit now. we were such good friends growing up so we sit and laugh about our old stupid stories. things like, when we were about 17 we saved up money to go see the kiss reunion show in toronto. we parked where i knew a place that we could park for free. only problem was is it was a 30 min walk from the venue. we finally get there and we’re so excited and realize neither of us have the tix. they’re in the car still! so we ran back and grabbed them then ran back again to the arena. and we ended up missing most of the show. then walked back to the car only to notice the car was towed. haha
