Tour Journals

As Mentioned in the “About” section of this site, I have played and toured with several bands over the years.

In 2003, Pat Clement of F.N.S. publishing distributed blank notebooks to several bands. Pat requested tour journals from the bands that he would go on to publish in a zine called “In The Van”. I happened to be a part of two of the tours that would be recorded for the zine. The first of the tours was The Clit 45/A global Threat 2003 East Coast Tour. On this tour I was playing bass for Clit 45. The AGT crew took on all of the writing duties for the tour journal. The second tour was The Virus/Blind Society 2003 North American Tour. On this tour I was roadie/merch guy for the Virus. This time, I wrote the majority of the journal entries.

After reading the finished product of these two tour journals I was inspired to keep writing journals during future tours. I managed to write about almost every day of almost every tour I was on from 2004 to today. There are a few tours, as well as a few days on certain tours that I left out. Neglecting my journal duties on these tours is one of my biggest regrets in my touring career.

Below are links to the tour journals that I have uploaded so far. Unfortunately, all of these tour journals were handwritten and typing them up is quite time consuming. I will add entries as I have time.
