He came out with the cord around my neck, and was born dead. ,He found this trivial growing up! Turbo had many out of body experiences thrueout his life that makes that being still born a big factor ! But We can get to that some other time. Turbo Lived what some would call a well off life. Not over the top! But He never went hungry.
growing up , every one in his family were musicians, and looked for attention every where He could. And got it. cause He was the baby in the family ! So never shy of an audience. always loved the spot light. Even Thoe sometimes he did not know he was getting it. Turbo did get stage fright a few times. Every one gets that, But you Get over that after a few bad experiences, turn good ! Turbo feels he was never given his just when it came to music! This puzzled him! With a dad that was a famous musician in a few towns! decided turbos brother would be his drummer! This all happened when He was real young!! Turbo looked up to his brother so much for being the best drummer He knew! he Got to play out all the time! he got to Stay out late! Turbo triec to show his dad I could do it! But was aways over looked,
Turbo set to be better no matter what it took! But one day He got caught playing his brothers drums on perpous. And was begging for attention, Is brother threw him for a loop? He was calm. and collected ! Before turbo even got a chance to say a word! " turbos brother said , You got to count to 4. " after that turbo kept his mouth shut! all thrown off! what, what? , he was helping . , Turbo finally ot the courage and said said " I'm going to be better than u, that's what I'm going to do!
