George@bigrichard.comHello folks, George Allen Thomas the 3rd here. KF5VRW For those of you curious how I came to be, here's a little background info on me. My father "Big George" was playing drums professionally around the time I was brought into the world,so for several years I grew up watching him play. Eventually I was tall enough to start playing drums somewhere around 5yrs old. As I was movinging through high school I realized all the cool kids played guitar. Bammmm, I became a guitar player. I played guitar and bass in various bands with by childhood beat bud Brian Fuente till I was 21. From there I joined a cover band out of Jackson,MS "full moon circus" and introduced myself to the world of being a full time musician. We ran into another band "strippers lie" while playing a show down in Florida. They offered me more $$ to move to Houston and join them. That's exactly what I did. Eventually BC(singer) and I quit and started our own band "the crisis" around 2005. That' lasted for several years and was an incredible ride! I was able to share the stage with numerous national acts and totaled over 250 shows a year. Our drummer (Charlie) invited us to join his band Facplant during that time as well. We still have this project up and running. So around 2009 Charlie and I changed around some and formed our latest group "Big Richard". Big Richard has kept me playing 200-250 show per year. I wouldn't change a thing. I love my job. I have a supportive wife that recently graduated college and is a neuro surgery assistant. Also have 2 kick arse kids one of which is into sports and the other into playing music. That's my short story. Deuces!
