So you want to know what makes Bri tick.  I've always felt that one must maintain a balance in life.  Therefore, I choose to play as hard as I work, for "All work and no play makes Bri a very dull guy". Unfortunately as I get older, my body doesn't always react in the intended way. This has resulted in the last two columns below!

** St. Francis Hospital has seen fit to issue me an E.R. frequent flyer card in order to expedite my treatments (I am not joking!)

Luckily I am blessed with a wife who has many of my same interests.  When I'm not abusing my body from these activities, I relax by listening to either the greatest band ever, The Rolling Stones (my wife thinks Keith Richards is the walking dead) or Concrete Blonde (Johnette Napolitano possesses the most powerful and captivating voice in the music industry today. Couple that with hardhitting lyrics addressing the harsh realities in today's society, you are left wondering why other musicians even try). If those two bands are not available, I can settle for Creed (yes, this decades Stryper), Fuel, Cult, Puddle of Mudd, Black Lab or just about any band out of Seattle (Pearl Jam, Mother Love Bone, Soundgarden, Candlebox, Temple of the Dog ... and the grunge lists goes on). See the Den's Lists page for more details in this area.
