“ The first time I met Nikki I just got a job teaching guitar. I was right out of high school and I was substituting for his teacher at the time. We ended up talking music and I showed him the project I was in. Nikki was still in high school and mentioned he also sang. The next time i saw Nikki was at a mutual friends house party.
