Camden believes in the power of song, the obligation of the picture, the curse of the smell, the joy of the memory.

In high school, Camden hitchhiked from his home in Northern California to the Ontario Motor Speedway in Southern California to attend the California Jam ll. His accommodations for the weekend were the ice plant in the freeway off ramp.

Over the years he has found himself backstage at venues throughout the world and only Security seems to care. Camden has shouted out &^% to Johnny Rotten and been told to settle down by Ian Hunter.
