Radly "Rad" Jose Phoenix, born to an American mother and a Mexican father, thus began life as he was destined to live it... going in several directions at once. A brillent neurosurgeon, this restless young man grew quickly dissatisfied with a life devoted soley to medicine. He roamed the planet studying martial arts and particle physics, collecting around him a most eccentric group of friends, those hard-rocking scientists 1209towanda.

My Introduction to TMBG[edit]

I was initially taught Particle Man as a campfire song in scouts. Then I saw them perform The Guitar & The Statue Got Me High on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. I was hooked. Flood was the first CD I ever bought followed by Apollo 18 on cassette a week later. They remained my favorite band through out my formative years and I still don't pass up a chance to go see them play if I can help it. I'm that rare breed of dancing fan too, so look out.
