Kevin Murphy is known to many as a crazy hesher with long hair, the drummer from Headset, the guitarist for 411 and, of course, Farside. Living most of his life in Southern California, he attended San Diego State University to please his parents, graduating with a degree in US History with a minor in Comparative Religion. At 8 he got terrified by Gene Simmons from Kiss at his first concert, and when he was 11, the 1984 Black Flag show changed his life. After 5 lessons from a guy at the guitar store he started to master his guitar skills and eventually figured out drums.

Preferring to create rather than learning the music of others, he became an influential character in the history of the underground music scene of the ‘80s and ‘90s in America. Let’s see what he has to tell about his long experience in music, after numerous changes in his life.
