Artist Biography by

David Thomas is a entertainment writer for the Palm Beach Post newspaper in West Palm Beach, Florida. He's written for Sonicnet/Addicted To Noise, MTV Online, The Sun-Sentinel newspaper in Fort Lauderdale, City Link also in Fort Lauderdale and was a writer and editor for the Indiana Daily Student for four years in Bloomington, Indiana. David graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelors Degree in Journalism in the summer of 1998. After the commencement ceremony he got on a tour bus for the summer of 1998 as the Vans Warped Tour Online Correspondent. He travelled with the tour for six weeks, living, eating and breathing punk rock with bands like the Deftones, Rancid, CIV, the Bouncing Souls and others. Besides a love for punk rock David has a deep dark secret. His adoration for Pearl Jam. The writer has driven thousands of miles and has seen the band eight times over the past five years. Hundreds of live Pearl Jam DAT tapes fill his cabinets. And he has the annoying habit of relating each day on the calender to a Pearl Jam show. (September 1: in 1998 Pearl Jam played its first show in Atlanta, GA in four years. The band also played on the same day in 1992 at Lollapalooza in Atlanta.) Despite his famous name David doesn't wear ties with short sleeve shirts, although he likes a Frosty on occasion. ~ David Thomas
