You ever wonder if that kid that plays video games all the time is ever going to amount to anything? Steven Kleisath joins our story with his journey though music, competitive gaming and airport limo runs. You've heard him before; he's played drums in Strongarm, Shai Hulud, Further Seems Forever, En Masse and Comanche. Mr. Kleisath is also the World Record holder in the classic arcade game "Mario Bros." - scoring over 5 million points. He is also the #3 Ms. Pac-Man (Turbo) player in the world as ranked by Twin Galaxies. All of this and still manages to drive for a Florida limo company called Alphatrans. He once toured with Shai Hulud AND Strongarm and played two sets a night! Steven tells us for the first time that there is a "How To Start A Fire" reunion brewing for 2016. (Thanks Steven!) He'll be in Pittsburgh in July/August as a panelist at Replay FX for Mario Bros, if you're a game fan you should go see him. Tell him ATSG sent ya...
This is one of the busiest guys you'll ever hear and we were honored to have him join us. He has invited all of our listeners who are interested in on-line poker or game streaming to follow him on his twitch page (link below). Thanks for listening! We love you. Take Care. Bye-bye.
