Story by Karen Cotton
Q : How did you first become a member of Fate Under Fire ?
“That’s kind of a funny story, I originally became a member of Fate Under Fire by a simple email. I was a fan of the band before hand and I emailed the band asking if they needed a guitar player or knew of anyone who needed a guitar player. I got an email back saying they did not need a guitar player. The next day I got another email back saying the lead guitarist in the band had just left the band because he was getting married and didn’t want to tour anymore. One thing led to another and here I am.”
