- High School / Douglas Freeman High School in Richmond, VA. Proud home to our most famous alum Bill Leverty, guitarist of early 1990s second tier glam band Firehouse.
- Favorite Band At 16 / Ooh this is tough but pretty generic mid 1990s: Pink Floyd / Dark Side, U2 / Joshua Tree, Outkast / Southernplayalistic, Biggie / Ready To Die, Led Zeppelin I, plus local heroes Fighting Gravity
- First Car / No car on 16th birthday but my lawnmowing customer donated me a 1982 Subaru GL with a cracked engine block that required garden hose coolant refills. I caught it on fire the last day of junior year.
