After birth, he rolled to the bottom of a gully and was raised by various rodents. He currently lives under constant attack, occasionally partying with the wild desert animals.
I'm sure you have some questions, and the one I'm asked most often is "What's your pen name about?" Well, let's put it this way...the MC5 were a band back in the Sixties and Seventies. They were managed by a poet and radical political activist named John Sinclair, who was sentenced to ten years in prison for selling two marijuana joints to an undercover police officer. A benefit concert called Ten for Two was held which attracted such celebrities as John Lennon and Stevie Wonder, in addition (of course) to the MC5 and other such bands, to the cause of getting this unfair prison sentence reduced. A few days later, Sinclair was released. So my pen name is basically a tribute to good loud hardcore rock music, and justice for those unfairly treated.
