I feel like I could have known him. I probably didn't but we did haunt some of the same circles, around the same time he was still in SC. I am from Columbia, but used to travel to Myrtle Beach, Charleston, Charlotte, Augusta and Atlanta to see bands. It is very possible that while I was crashing on an unknown "groupie's" floor, he may have been partying in the next room. I may have even hung out with Eric Hager. You never know. What I do know, is if he is anything like his pics, I hope he is "Rockin In Paradise".
