    Talking One random fact about yourself

    Thought I'd post this topic for fun. It should reveal interesting attributes of people who frequent this forum.

    Post one random fact about yourself. It can something trivial or something important. Anything you feel like sharing. Doesn't necessarily have to be related to music.

    So here I go -

    I can mimic almost anybody - voice, gait, mannerisms, quirks etc perfectly within 15 minutes of meeting that person. So if any of you meet me, watch out!

    I have a tattoo of my son's handprints from when he was 3 weeks old on my right shoulder blade.

    I'm the second member of my family capable of playing more than four instruments (one at a time still, though...)

    The first was my great-grandad who was a clarinet/sax/horn/etc player for Fry's Million Dollar Pier Orchestra.

    My first bedroom was F. Lee Bailey's office.

    Sax related: In fourth grade, I went to Emilio Lyon's house (with my parents) to have my Bundy alto adjusted.

    I am ambidextrous.

    For most folks that means they are both-handed as opposed to just being left or right handed. For me, my wife contends that it really means I am equally neither-handed.

    Ironically, when I am usually asked to share one random fact about myself, I usually tell them I play saxophone. But I figure that one is a given here on SOTW.
    Good Luck,

    I had a brief romance with a woman whose mother had bought a used refrigerator from Pee Wee Herman's mother.

    take THAT. but WAIT! there's more...

    "you're on 10 on your guitar, ... where can you go from there?...these (amplifier knobs) go to eleven".

    "don't point... it can't be played".
    if you could hear what i hear, you'd like it a lot better than what i play.
