Chris (Guitar)

going playing together.  Chris's rock background mixed really well with Tony and Nick's punk influenced playing.  "Even when we were still in Heart She Harlot, we knew it wasn't going to last long, but that didn't matter to us at all.  I felt extremely comfortable playing with Tony and Nick, especially because of the way I play.  Tony gives me this sweet rhythm and the writing just instantly comes from my hands.  So we decided to keep at it." They tagged it, Me, the Hero?, and the rest continues to unfold.

Music has always been a part of Chris, "Ever since I can remember I used to love being in the car with my dad because of the radio. He would always have Spanish music on tejano, banda, norteño, etc. so those were the first genres I was exposed to and i just jammed to it as a kid. I loved it and still do." He didn't start getting into English music until his early teens, "I was young when I started listening to rock because I only had the radio and what was playing was what my parents liked. So I listened off of what my brother listened to at the time Nickleback, Limp Bizkit, Staind, and so on." When Chris got his first guitar he started searching out for more bands, artist, and musicians to get more depth and taste into his playing. "One Spanish rock band I knew growing up was Mana so when I started playing guitar I payed attention to the guitarist and he right away be came my first influence then later along with Eddie van Halen."

Chris was part of Me, the Hero? since the very beginning.  It all started from his previous band, where Chris first met Nick and Tony.  Towards the end of his departure from Heart She Harlot, he sensed he was not on the same page as the singer, musically.  With that and horrible management, Chris left the band along with Tony and Nick.  The three knew they had something good
