Today is the birthday of SPACE JUNK friend and local bass ripper Alex Hammond. If you know Alex then you already know that he's probably the nicest dude you have ever met or ever will meet. If you don't know Alex, don't be surprised if you meet him on a plane, at a Starbucks (while he dances to GummiBar in his head, waiting for his chai), or really any major metropolitan area - seriously, I can't tell you how many stories I've heard of someone I know meeting the "A-Man" somehow in Michigan, New York, Colorado, Iowa, Germany, and California, just to name a few. What can I say? He's everywhere. But aside from his overall nicety and supposed omnipresence, the dude is an amazing musician. You should hear him play the bass, guitar, drums, whatever he can get his hands on. The dude is just talented. Not to mention, he has probably the most unique collection of gear in the tri-state area...so expect to hear from Alex in future SPACE JUNK happenings.
Happy birthday, the A-Man.
