Todays guest is a man with not just a unusual name, but a fascinating tale of how he has reached a place in his life where he seems totally at ease and loving everyday.
Growing up in a tiny little town called Seven Points in East Texas for the first few years of his adult life he hadn't got into first gear.
Studying Graphic Design at college, he didn't start setting the world alight.
In fact I'm sure the only thing that he considered setting alight was the college.
It didn't suit him, and he hated every minute.
But he did what he had to do, and graduated before getting a job quickly in an advertising agency in Dallas.
And looking back I am assuming he hated college as in many ways it supressed his free spirit.
His desire to do things his own way.
His need to be creative on his own terms.
So fast forward to the evenings and like Bruce Wayne and his alter ego The Dark knight, our guest slipped effortless into his other role. That of guitar strutting rock god.
Yes, he worked hard with his band, toured nationally, playing festivals, getting on the radio, and sharing stage space with some of the biggest bands of the day. And then it came to an end.
His music career was no more.
So what do you do when everything you have worked for comes to an end.
Where do you go when you are at a crossroads in your life, and the dots that have led you to this point stop, and you are left with just your own vision of what life will be?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only AJ Amyx
