15 minutes with Dave Woodward

Where were you born and where did you grow up?

I was born and raised in Berea, OH.

Share some memories of your childhood -- school, family, hobbies,
extracurricular activities, musical instruments, sports, etc.

I had a happy childhood in the Cleveland suburbs.  Our family consisted of my parents, my younger brother, myself, and a dozen or so pets, from fish to turtles, to lizards, to cats, and dogs.  I was a small, skinny kid who learned how to make the bullies laugh.  I took up trumpet in 7th grade.  When that didn’t get me any girls, I took up guitar.  When that didn’t work, I realized I needed a new tactic.
