My name is Russell Bonham II, I have 2 wonderful children by the name of Ziggy and Ayanna. I love them more than anything in this world. They own my heart and soul. I have a little brother named Parker. I love him as much as I love my kids. I'll always have him under my wing. My family means a lot to me. Yeah they're a little crazy, but then again so am I. I'm a very laid back person and easy to get along with. I like to meet and talk to people. It don't matter if your Christian, Jewish, Black, Chinese, Gay or you worship a Pepsi can, we are all people with our own problems. If your a cool person, I'll hang out with you. No matter what happens in any situation I try to keep a smile on my face. I am nice to everybody I meet, and a gentleman to any woman i talk to. I like to have a lot of fun no matter what im doing. I love to laugh, even if I am laughing at myself.(Which happens a lot) I love every single friend that I have. I would kill and die for every one of them. If it wasn't for my friends, I don't know what I would do with myself. I don't ask for advice much, but when I need it I definitely get it. Im a firm believer in Karma. You get back what you put out. Im a brutally honest person. Sometimes I keep shit bottled up inside, only because of the outcome of the conversation. If I were ever asked about what was on my mind, I would be honest about it. I don't believe in lying. If you tell a lie then you have to cover it up with another lie. You end up hurting people and causing yourself more drama than its worth. Your best bet is to man up and accept responsibility for your actions. Ive done a lot of things in my life im not proud of. Ive screwed up some really good jobs and friendships, and been irresponsible with money and life in general. But Ive learned a lot from my mistakes and it has made me an overall better person. I care about the way my friends and family view me. Other than that I can care less. Either you like me for who I am or you can leave me alone. I almost died twice in 2008. Im very appreciative to be here. I have a purpose on this planet and I intend on finding it. Im a relationship type of guy, But im at the point in my life where im not gonna rush into any kind of serious relationship. Life doesn't last long enough to sell your self short. You should live every day like its your last, and never settle for nothing less than what makes you happy. But if fate throws me a curve ball, im definitely not scared of commitment.

BIO


I love playing the drums. Even if it's not a drum, I like to beat on it. I've been playing drums since I was literally two years old. I was on a television show named Heart of the Country when I was two playing Jump by Van Halen. I had a back up drummer of course, but I was still keeping time. I got to do television commercials for local music stores, and I got free gear from them as well. I guess they liked the fact I was a toddler who could play 8th note rock patterns. I grew up in redneck,blues and jazz nightclubs all of my life. My father, Russell Bonham, was sure to keep me on stage with him as much as possible. With him gigging so much I got to meet a lot of different drummers, with different styles of playing. Needless to say,I had many mentors coming up. As I grew older and experienced gigging with different styles of music, I was able to start making money in my teens. I know it sounds horrible, allowing a child into a bar, but I got away with it and wouldn't change any of it for the world. If it wasn't for me being exposed to booze, women, live music, and smoked filled clubs, I wouldn't be the drummer I am today. You can usually find me teaching percussion. If not, im gigging or learning to tattoo. My goal in life is to achieve happiness by making money doing what I love: playing music in any way possible.
