When Dan was a young boy he was having severe migraines, and remembers all the times being picked up from school, taken to the doctor for a shot of demerol because the migraines would get so bad he would collapse.
The doctors had told his parents that he needed to take some kind of music lessons to help. At age 8 he began piano and guitar lessons but became bored of theory and classical music. One day he heard what was called 'boogie woogie' and loved it. He began writing his own music and getting others together that wanted to play music as badly as he did. He cut his first record at age 13 under the name "The Exterminators". They were all in the 7th grade and the school liked them so much they sent them to many schools for their special events. They played the same venue as Paul Revere and the Raiders. Dan has been playing music for over 50 years now and since 13 years old is with the same band called 'Second Wind'. Dan uses music to help relieve his pain from childhood as well as from his on the job injury as a contractor.
Dan owned a cabinet shop in Grover Beach, California. He was working one day when he picked up a table saw and twisted to place it in a different spot so he could sweep under it and his back went 'POP', down he went and the pain started shooting through his right leg and middle back. He has been depressed, suicial, and felt as though he's not good for anything. He had surgery after being paralyzed, but after surgery the pain was worse so he got a morphine pain pump inplanted and it's doing well.
