Real Name: Michael Hess or called Mike, Mikey, Mickey
Rocky Horror Nicknames: Trash (Given by Sal Piro), 2-Sex-C, and "The Guy with all of the Rocky Shit)
Status: Married, 2 dogs, home owner, model railroader nut, theatre organ entusiast, collector of almost everthing.
First Time: (Sex? Let's not go there!) First time I saw Rocky Horror was October 6th, 1984 at Movies at Lakeside Mall (UA Theaters).
Rocky Horror Casts I've been in: "Shock Treatment" (Lakeside and Warren Cinema), "Simply His Servants" (Lakeside), The Flint Capital Theater Special Casts - movie and live shows, The Pheenix Production of The Rocky Horror Show Revue - and took parts in others.
Parts I've played: There are no parts I haven't played at one time or another - but my main character has always been the good Doctor. I gave up performing as Frankie a number of years ago when I found I could no longer handle the shoes and my costume no longer fit the right way. (Hmmmm - maybe one day - but not now. I'll let you kids do it - for now! When I start feeling younger I'll be back with a whip.
Wrote: The Ultimate RH Trivia Quiz (upated so many times that it needs to be released soon as the "Final" - coming soon!!!) and co-authored the RHPS Audience Participation/Collectors Guide with Sal Piro. (Contact me about question regarding the Sword/Planet 45 mentioned int he book.)
RH Film Stars I've Met: All - with the exception of Peter Hinwood, Charles Gray and all Transylvanians.
Interesting Info: Email pal with one of Meat's daughters.
You'd laugh but I'll tell you any way: First concert - The Osmond Family. Since then, I've never missed a show when any of them (Brothers, Marie, Donny) come to town. I got to sing a duet with Marie in 2006. (She was my first crush when I was a kid - and I still love her!)
Favorite Bands/Artists/Music Types: Meat Loaf, and music written or produced by Jim Stienman, Sparks (no one will remember them - will they), ABBA, Billy Joel, B52s, Ramones, Beatles, Beach Boys, Glenn Miller, Wagner, Bach, Beethoven, Chopan, George Wright, Lynn Larsen - Type - everything from Classical & Opera to Blues, Soul, all stages of Rock (except psychedlic), and a little bit of Rap (if done right!) Greatest sound to me is still the Theatre Pipe Organ (hence George Wright - the greatest next to Jesse Crawford.) If anyone knows who GW or JC is - please contact me - otherwise they're just names to everone.
Other Hobbies: Digital Photography (aand all aspects), Model Railroading, Record Collecting, Playing the organ and/or synths in my new home recording studio, writing my newest book.
Other special involment: AA and NA involed group activity to assist in keeping kids from being where I've been (HELL!!!) I'm sorry for this little spot - but I need to say it for me - and some will understand! "Church Religion is for people trying to not to go to Hell. Spirituality is for people you already been there - and don't want to go back!" It doesn't matter what your spirtual side is - just so long as you LOVE! Afterall, that is what all religin an spirituallity is preaching, teaching and meant to be.
All my luv to Rocky fans everywhere
