The Adolescent Theory

JUSTIN KNEW GROWING UP HE WAS DIFFERENT, HE COULD HEAR MUSIC IN EVERYDAY LIFE. HE KNEW THAT IT WAS THE ONE THING THAT NO ONE COULD TAKE AWAY FROM HIM. MUSIC MADE HIM STRONG AND MADE HIM FEEL LIKE HE COULD TAKE ON THE WORLD. JUSTIN GREW UP WITH DRUMMING IN HIS BLOOD, HIS UNCLE MARK CORNELE BEING ONE OF THE BEST DRUMMERS HE KNEW AND IDOLIZED AND HIS UNCLE CHUCK BEING A VERY GOOD BLUES DRUMMER EVEN HIS COUSINS PLAYED. JUSTIN KNEW THAT DRUMMING WAS HIS PATH IN LIFE. JUSTIN GOT HIS FIRST DRUM SET WHEN HE WAS 12 YEARS OLD AND HIS UNCLE MARK TAUGHT HIM HOW TO FOCUS HIS MIND AND BE ABLE TO CREATE THE MUSIC THAT WAS IN HIS HEART. JUSTIN HAS PLAYED IN MANY DIFFERENT BANDS RANGING FROM METAL TO BLUES, HES TOURED WITH A COUPLE OF HIS BANDS AND HIS METAL BAND HAS PLAYED WITH COUNTLESS BANDS, MOST NOTABLE WAS WITH I WRESTLED A BEAR ONCE & TRIVIUM. WITH HIS 15 YEARS OF DRUMMING HE FINALLY SETTLED ON A STYLE THAT HE LOVES, JUSTIN HAS FOUND HIS PASSION AS A POP PUNK DRUMMER AND BACK UP VOCALIST. HIS LOVE FOR MUSIC GOES DEEP; JUSTIN KNOWS THAT IT’S HIS TALENTS AND MUSIC THAT WILL SHINE A LIGHT ON HIS PATH WHEN LIFE GETS DARK. I have to give my family credit for putting up with the racket, because as some of you may know, its not the easiest thing in the world to live with a kid who's trying to become a rock and roll drummer.
