At the age 12, Mark's very first band 'Open Current', I played their debut and only show.

It was during lunch hour at the Lincoln School ampitheatre in Alameda, Ca. It was vocalist Scott Rowley, guitarist Steve 'Sky' Clems (band leader), my best friend 'Jimmi Ward' (guitarist now turned bassist), drummer Keith Davis and myself. Yes, 3 guitar players and no bassist. Together we enjoyed the rush of rocking a crowd! Jimmi and I were absorbing as much music as we could in our off hours from school in those days. Having fun practicing riffs on his infamous Kingston EKO guitar (aka 'Flying U'), our musical seeds were planted as it fed our musical hearts from that moment onward.
