Marty Rose, Retired Sea Dog, Drummer, Tree hugger; Clintwood, Virginia:

“At 17, I shipped out of this one horse coal town, never thinking of what I was leaving behind or the lessons I had yet to learn, I was just glad to be going. I was ready for the greatest adventure of all. But coming home after 20 years, a lot of salt water under the bridge, I have finally found my way in life. It was here the whole time... I have since learned to appreciate the gifts home has to give; good,honest people, great music, awesome friends... Sometimes, you can see the forest for the trees. I'm glad I'm part of this place, its traditions, its people and its heritage. May we live long and prosper and rock out to some kick ass music.”
