Question 8:Q: Future plans after the music business is all said and done?
A: Well, at one time I wanted to become a professional bowler (PBA member), and maybe become a PBA Tour champion like my bowling idol, 1988 PBA Player Of The Year and PBA Hall Of Famer (inducted in 1994), Brian Voss.
When I first met my common-law wife, Alice Yantz at the now-defunct Key City Lanes back in 1989, she was bowling in a mixed league, and I had been a long-time viewer of the legendary ABC Sports’ Professional Bowlers Tour series with the late Chris Schenkel and Nelson (Bo) Burton, Jr., since the mid-1970s.
My late grandmother, at my insistence, got me my first ball back in 1989, an Ebonite Thunderbolt, and I have been a huge student of this great sport since, and in all of the years that I have watched those shows, back then on ABC, and now on ESPN, I still haven’t yet found another bowler with a better, more classic form, solid release, mental toughness, and, the physical strength to overpower a tough lane condition (if necessary) than that of Brian Voss.
I am also currently in the process of learning more about the newer, more powerful bowling balls, the latest equipment, speed control, hand action, and how to hook the ball more so I can become a more versatile player so that I can play different shots on different lane conditions, no matter what the oil pattern or lane surface is. Plus, Brian Voss also cross-trained by weightlifting and also running, which is so important for the long, constant grind of the PBA Tour.
It’s just like Nelson Burton, Jr. once said on ABC a few years back, “…how many miles can YOU walk with 16 pounds in your hand???” It is all about endurance, as well as of course, winning, especially when you bowl for a living like they do on Tour.
Obviously I know more about our great sport than a moron like Bill Simmons ever could, that question and its answer on my website are definitive of that.
