Owner founder of Action Video and Photography est 1981. Seminar speaker Video Maker Magazine, & WEVA. Ex High School Baseball Coach. Member of 2 time Senior Mens Baseball World Champions from San Diego 2008, 2009. Creator of "The Waky Jack Show" internet comedy channel. Author of the book " Motley Rock Stories" . Contray to the information on the Main Crawford "notables" site page, I was the drummer in the first Mottley Croo not the first Motley Crue drummer. There is a difference. I invented and was the first upside down drummer in a band called " Mottley Croo" 10 years before my roomate and guitarist Bob Deal aka Mick Mars hit the big time with the current Motley Crue. Of course story goes Tommy Lee came up his upside down drum act in a dream. 1975 Video of the 1st upside down drummer with Mick Mars on guitar @ www.b4dirt.com

School Story:

Taco , Moon and Gross. Bill Knoll, Dave Miller and me. 3 original jackasses from the class of 68. I was named Moon for embarassing reasons. Dave and I were cut from the baseball and football teams for long hair. Too bad . Dave was the best athelete I ever saw and I wasn't too bad myself. They could have used us. Played in a band called "The Images" in high school with Pat Hawk. Her father Frank managed the band. Little Tony Hawk ( skateboard king) was Pat's newborn brother. Find Crawford H.S. stories in my book " Motley Rock Stories" T. M. & G. set the school record for suspensions. We painted the 30' wide peace sign in the senior quad the night before the last day of class 68. I hit Steven Bishop and my Drama class teacher Mrs Edgecomb by mistake with a water balloon later that day. Was aiming for someone else. Wanted to marry Adelle Rabin or Pam Hummel but never let on. Shy musician type off stage. I just kept to myself & T. M. G. T. M. & G. was banned from commencement excercises but crashed them anyway and created a scene. Not really bad kids but I was the only one of us to avoid any time in jail. The other 2 became prominent sucessful citizens and I wound up a crazy, insane professional rock and roller. Go figure. Had a successful carreer for 30 years and lost most of it all in the real estate meltdown. Some bank somewhere has $200k of my life savings. So now I have more respect for bank robbers than most politicians. Would like to be the Geiser Bandit when I grow up if there was not already one. Have to be original you know.
