About FlamingYouth
Guitar-wise, I got my first axe and amp (a Fender starter kit with a Starcaster and a Frontman 15) for Christmas when I was 13. I was really stoked at first, but bummed out when i couldn't rip out tunes like Hotel California at my first couple goes, so the kit collected dust for a while. But as soon as I turned 14 I moved with my family to Lisbon, Portugal. We spent our first two months in temporary housing and all we pretty much had were clothes, dishes, sheets for the beds, a TV with four local channels (which aired nothing but re-runs of portuguese soap operas) and a few personal items. I brought my Starcaster with me, and that was the first time I really got a chance to get into playing, and I've never looked back since.


This is a video of my friends and I playing 'Sympathy for the Devil' by the Rolling Stones at our school's talent show when i was 16 (i'm the tall blonde guy playing the black LP):




Since then I've played my first full gig at a friend's 18th Birthday party. This is footage of us playing 'Roadhouse Blues' by the Doors (I'm playing lead guitar):
