Since my father’s passing, life had been a blur. My demons had grown louder, and my drinking had become a crutch to numb the pain. But amidst the chaos, a glimmer of hope appeared in the form of Danny Garcia’s message about FirstLive’s new initiative, “30 Days To Rock.” The mission was to raise funds for small businesses while giving artists a platform to shine during the pandemic. And Alonzo and I were going to be a part of it. Walking into the FirstLive studio again, I felt a rush of adrenaline course through my veins. The smell of coffee and the hum of equipment filled the air as we made our way to our designated spot. Before the cameras were rolling, I pulled out my trusty iPad to begin filming behind-the-scenes footage for Roach TV. As I walked throughout the cafe/studio, I couldn’t contain my excitement. We were finally returning to the air, and this time, we were supporting a cause that meant something. The 30 Days To Rock initiative was more than just a show. It was a way for us to give back and make a difference in the world. I felt a twinge of guilt as I looked back at the footage later. My face was a little swollen, my eyes bloodshot from all the beer I had been drinking. But in that moment, I saw endless possibilities for Bud and Roach with this new angle. We were going to make a difference, and I was going to be there every step of the way. It wasn’t going to be easy. The pandemic had hit everyone hard, and small businesses were struggling to stay afloat. But with the support of FirstLive and the determination of Alonzo and myself, we were going to make a difference. We were going to be a part of something bigger than ourselves.
