"Every now and then, a drummer will ask me how I came to play for Incubus' Ben Kenney aka @vatoben . Luck. It was cold out, and I happened to wander into a music store where he, Brandon Boyd and @djkilmore were record shopping. I struck up a conversation, promising myself not to take more than 2 minutes of their time, as I was sure they got approached by fans often. It came up in conversation that I played with one of Ben's favourite guitarists (Big Wreck's Ian Thornley), so he asked for my info. A few months later he contacted me and asked if I'd be interested in playing a show with him in L.A. That was in '05, and since then he's become one of my favourite people on the planet as well as one of my all time favourite songwriters. I'll be honest though... I'm legitimately surprised he wanted anything to do with me after seeing whatever the f*** was going on with the top of my head back then. #flashbackfridays #incubus"
