“WE KICKED OUT THE GUY THAT WAS PAYING RENT TO LIVE THERE. WE WERE LIKE, “YOU HAVE TO GO. WE’RE BUILDING A RAMP IN YOUR ROOM.”
How’s life on the East Coast, Steve?
Oh, man, it’s slow, but the band is going 100 miles an hour. We’re writing a new album, too.
Give me a quick rundown of who is in the band?
Dan Walsh is in the band. He’s a skateboard attorney and I’m the skateboard real estate broker. Danny and I could take care of the whole closing for you when you buy a house. We’ll go skate and I’ll tell you how to buy a house. I specialize in that. We’ve got Christian Hoffmeister, John Czarneski and Mike Milazzo. John has been in the band for a couple years now. He’s the drummer. Mike and Danny are playing guitar and Christian is on bass.
You guys have changed your line-up.
Danny and I are the originals, and Mike has been in the band for a long time, too. Even when Sean Skyler was in the band, Mike was in the band.
Let’s talk about Sean Schuyler.
That’s when we all met each other. A lot of your crew from upper Connecticut was exactly like Sean. All he did was skate The Playground Skatepark in Wallingford. I was going to school in Central Connecticut over in New Britain, so I’d meet up with Sean to go skate. Prior to the Playground, Sean and I were from the same area. We knew Sean when he moved here from California. I remember meeting you and Sloppy Sam and little Tony. I still see Tony in New Haven.
In the Playground days, Sean was a big vert jock and he was pushing me to ride. I remember this one little kid who’d hang around under the ramps. He’d follow us around like a little puppy dog and he played with his G.I. Joe figures under the ramp. We would call him Toy Boy. Remember Toy Boy? [Laughs] Oh yeah. Do you know who Toy Boy is? Jim Greco is Toy Boy. I hate to blow his cover, but the kid’s name is Toy Boy.
[Laughs] I ran into Greco a bunch of years ago and we were talking about the Playground.
That was a fun spot.
It was great. I remember going there and meeting up with Bruno and Sean.
