Where Did My Life Go? A Towering Experience


By (author): K.D. Sanders

Author K.D. Sanders is also a drummer who was raised in the Florida Keys. After graduating high school in 1987, he had dreams of becoming a rock star drummer. After a failed attempt in the South Florida area, he moved to San Francisco to live with his older brother. While there, he played in several bands but none brought him closer to rock stardom. One of the bands he was playing drums, decided to move to Los Angeles for a better chance of “making it”. He agreed with their decision and made the move with them. He left on a wing and a prayer leaving another bands he played drums for in San Francisco. All he had was a Volkswagen van to transport his drum set down to Los Angeles and a dream of making it in the music business. He didn’t have a job or an apartment set up before he left. The band said he could stay with them until he had found both. After about a month of gigs, his welcome came to a screeching halt when he couldn’t find a job and as a result, a place to live. He started living in his van still playing gigs with the band, then after some turmoil and a death in his family, the band broke up. Leaving him alone in L.A. still living in his van, as the departing members, moved back up to San Francisco. After being homeless for over a year, in a drunken, out of control, haze, he eventually got a job at Tower Records on the Sunset Strip working there for 3 years, living in his van the whole time until his van was towed and Tower Records went out of business. His experience inspired him to tell his story, “Where Did My Life Go? A Towering Experience”

Old school country band, Fall Down Daddy was founded by lyricist K.D. Sanders. The sound is reminiscent of Hank Williams Sr with a dash of Johnny Cash.

K.D. was the drummer for several bands in San Francisco before moving to Los Angeles with one of the bands to "make it" in the music business. The band broke up just a few months later. The other members went back to San Francisco while Kevin remained in L.A. sleeping in his 1973 Volkswagen van. He landed a job at the legendary Tower records on Sunset Blvd. (a place where Rivers Cuomo of Weezer once worked as well as Axl & Slash from Guns n' Roses @ Tower Video across the street)


K.D. worked at Tower records on the famous Sunset Strip while living in his van for over 3 years until that one fateful day when his van was towed away. With nowhere else to go, he slept behind Tower records continuing to work at the record store. After declining sales of CD's and the power of the Internet, the unthinkable happened, Tower records went out of business. He didn't know what to do, as he was band less, homeless and now job less he decided to take a Greyhound bus 3,000 miles back to his hometown in the Florida Keys. Always writing poems and lyrics in hopes that he could make a song one day with his words. He paid a production company 200 dollars to put music to his lyrics for the song, "Alcohol Call" recorded by David Fox (guitar/vocals) of Magic Key Productions.

The song, "Alcohol Call" has been released, although K.D. remains band less, job less and homeless in his hometown in the Florida Keys he also remains optimistic, thankful and hopeful that he has a song and stories to release to the world that just might change his current living situation as well as others in need of help. He gives thanks to his Creator with whom all things are possible and is grateful for the gifts that have been betowed upon him so that he may share his words to the world!! Thank you for reading the words God has given me to give to you.
