I have put this off long enough. With a nod to Nate and Janna; here are 5 odd, interesting, or otherwise strange facts about the Captain.
1. Guilty Pleasures:
I was, in high school, a HUGE fan of Rick Springfield. I wanted desperately to BE Rick Springfield. In fact, I have, on more than one occasion, dressed myself to that end. It is also worth mentioning that I once went to a dance in the most amazing “Mike Reno of Loverboy” get-up you have ever seen.
2. Shod for Success
I have a shoe fetish. Most of my clothes come from Target but I simply can not abide cheap shoes. I currently own 4 pair of Doc Martens (Black Boots, Brown Boots, Sandals, Shoes) and one pair of Birkenstock Sandals.
3. He Writes the Songs
My wife has NEVER heard me sing a Barry Manilow love ballad… and she married me anyway!
4. Bilbo, Frodo, and Me
I have been told by more than one person that I have “Hobbit – Feet” (see item #2).
5. Give My Regards to Broadway
I have portrayed, on stage, Marryin’ Sam in “Li’l Abner”, Curly in “Oklahoma”, and The Pirate King in “Pirates of Penzance”.

Roby's last song at Calvary Chapel Thousand Oaks on December 23rd 2007 at their morning services. He passed away on December 26. Roby was a great friend to my buddies Pearl and Larry Brick and produced a couple of their recordings. I never met him but believe that he was a beautifully flawed Christ follower who will now sing and play for his creator. Pax, Roby.
