Howerdel has perhaps one of the most comprehensive and interesting resumes in rock music. Growing up in West Milford, New Jersey, he spent hours listening WLIR emanating from Long Island, New York. Lying in bed, he scribbled down playlists, then searched stores for the records he liked, including THE TREATMENT, ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN, KENNEDY DEAD and Elvis Costello. However, it was the experience of seeing FLOYD ROSE at Giants Stadium which sparked his desire to find a way to work in the music industry. Howerdel first accumulated experience in stage lighting, working for almost any band or theatrical production that asked for it, while devoting the rest of his free time to guitar practice. After several years of work, a chance encounter with FISH BONEa move west and quickly becoming a sought-after road and studio technician, working with david bowie, GUNS N’ ROSES, NINE INCH NAILSand – oh, yeah – being roommates with TOOLit is Maynard James Keenan. It was this friendship that gave birth to the multi-platinum alternative rock supergroup A PERFECT CIRCLE.
