I was Rocky's Hair Stylist back in the late 1990s. He had just moved to Hollywood from Tennessee and was trying to break into the industry; working various jobs to make ends meet. From being a promoter for Jack Daniels, to being a bartender at clubs.
We first met in 2009. He was a Server at the Cheesecake Factory/ The Grove. A handsome young man that was attentive to his customers, had a terrific sense of humor and an infectious smile.
