is too short. You have to realize just how precious life is. It is too
short to be that serious. You have to enjoy your life while you have it."
That's what the Poison axeman
has been known to say.
True, he's lived it up and gained a reputation for heartily
partying and playing his heart out when on stage.
Born in Brooklyn, he actually ended up driving a taxi
when he entered
the work force. What a stereotype!
The first concert C.C. ever attended was, like so many
gone on to larger than life
rock stardom, Kiss.
He describes himself as loud, fast talking and obsessive
and digs guitars so much, that he owns at least
275 guitars. Wow!!
That's a lotta wood! That's a lotta strings Too! Lucky for C.C. he can
indulge himself in his hobby.
While he used to be a messenger for a photography service,
among other thing, the guitarist is quite happy playin' guitar for a livin'
and even though his time with Poison has come to an end, he will be making
Nice noise that C.C. grew up listening to included
Van Halen and Aerosmith
with favorite albums Rocket
to Russia by the Ramones
Heaven Tonight by Cheap
When the young rockerdecided he had enough with trying
to make an honest living, he set off for L.A. and played with bands St.
James and Screaming
Mimi before hooking up with Bret and Kind
of like a "live life to the fullest"
credo, and we agree!!
