  1. I remember the first band I played in as a teenager. Actually Jim (the Linescratchers reviewer) was in it as a bass player. The drummer was my brother, and the other guitarist was this guy named Jordan who was a really good guitar player. We were really big on Phish at the time so we’d just sit around jamming for hours. It was a ton of fun. The band was called 4F but nobody got it. Ha. And we all had nicknames… mine was Anguish Doom (two last names of people that went to my high school). How fun to think back that far.
