Wayne started out in the typical way banging on pots and pans to Van Halen’s Panama at the ripe age of 4 years old. Moving on to a Sears toy drum kit at 6 it’s was then when banging away to a cassette of Europe’s The Final Countdown when he realized two things. 1, this was what he would dedicate the rest of his life to and 2, this Sears kit was not cutting it.
Fast forward 9 years to age 15 where Wayne joined his first active band, Thrash Metal act Torn Soul. That band along with others such as Tie Fighter, Park Legend, Malicious Vendetta, Lickwid, and TYR never went past the local club scene.
It was in 2003 when Wayne with good friend Justin Elliot formed The Valentine Failures that all of that changed. The Valentine Failures took over the DFW scene over the course of 3 albums and a covers E.P in the mist of regional tours and high profile showcases at the annual South By Southwest festival in Austin. A record deal with a major label was presented and on the table but a shift in the industry proved it was not to be.
Throw into the mix during this time stints in Favored Nations recording artist Saints and Saviors, Ulterium recording artist Millennial Reign, and 3 stints in Hollywood Glam legends Pretty Boy Floyd and you can see how full the plate had become. It wasn’t until the disbanding of Pretty Boy Floyd after the 2012 America Rocks Tour that Wayne decided to return home and form the kind of band he had always wanted but never could find.
Wayne joined RIVETHEAD just before Halloween, 2015. We can’t wait to let the world see why we chose Wayne to join our line-up. He kicked our asses. Wait till he kicks yours!
