The Beginning of My Restless Child
Like all the other stories you hear or read about on how band members actually get together and produce music, mine is basically the same of how I joined Restless Child. It was dreary day in November 1988, when I received a phone call (remember No Cell Phones back then) from this guy in Mooresville, Indiana. At the time, I was living in Speedway, Indiana.
The voice on the other end of the phone sounded young, but, so was I at a messily 26 years old. Little did I know, though, that the voice I was listening to belonged to a 16 year old songwriter, guitar player named Nathan Yeary.
“Hey man, I saw your ad that you are a singer looking for a metal band? We’re looking for a singer. Would you like to check us out and audition?” Nathan asked. I said “Sure”, and that was it. No questions on previous experience, band names, live performances, and I didn’t ask Nathan any of those questions either.
From the directions that Nathan gave me, I arrived at a rural area of Mooresville that showed the character of old time farming. A nice, modest, 2 story home surrounded by about an acre of land, and this huge Norman Rockwell looking barn where I heard a guitar, bass, and drums in sync playing an unrecognizable song. I know they didn’t hear me pull up, and being a little early, I sat outside my car and listened to them for a while. I remember saying to myself how big of a sound they had with just a 3 piece.
Walking through that barn door was the beginning of a band that I am very proud of being a part of to this day. I just wish the other band members felt that way.
