About GHOST 74

ALLEN, TX

"GHOST" BORN MICHAEL HOSSACK IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. MOVED TO TEXAS WHEN THE PARENTS DIVORCED. LIVED WITH MOM TILL I WAS 12,THEN MOVED BACK TO DAD'S TILL I WAS 20 YEARS OLD.THEN BACK TO DALLAS,WHERE I CONTINUE TO LIVE. MY MUSICAL INFLUENCES RANGE FROM STEELY DAN,PATO BANTON, KRS-ONE,THE TEMPTATIONS,STEVIE WONDER,ERIC B&RAKIM,CYPRESS HILL,DJ QBERT,BEASTIE BOYS,PUBLIC ENEMY,BOB MARLEY,JIMI HENDRIX,JAMES BROWN TO THE DOOBIE BROTHERS.
MY MOM BOUGHT ME MY FIRST SET OF TURNTABLES AND A GEMINI SAMPLER.THATS WHEN I FIRST STARTED TO PRODUCE MIX TAPES AND BECAME INVOLVED WITH RECORDING.I HAVE SINCE USED THE ROLAND MC303 GROOVEBOX,AKAI MPC 2000XL,MPC 2500,YAMAHA MOTIF6,REASON,KORG TRITON,PRO TOOLS,AND THE ROLAND VS2000. MY DAD TAUGHT ME HOW TO PLAY THE DRUMS.MICHAEL HOSSACK SR. IS THE ORIGINAL&CURRENT DRUMMER FOR THE ROCK BAND "THE DOOBIE BROTHERS" I WAS ABLE TO GO ON THE ROAD WITH THE BAND AND TOURED THE U.S.JAPAN,AND GUAM.SOME MAY ASSUME THAT I HAVE USED MY DAD'S POSITION IN THE MUSIC BIZ TO GET A FOOT IN THE DOOR. ALTHOUGH I GAINED EXPERIENCE FROM THE STUDIOS, LIVE SHOWS,TRAVELLING,PRODUCTION AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT. I WANTED TO "PAY MY DUES" SO I HAVE CONTINUED TO TAKE IT ONE DAY AT A TIME WITH THIS WHOLE THING. I HAVE HEARD EVERY TYPE OF BULL $h!t LINE POSSIBLE. LIKE"OH I WORK FOR SHADY AFTERMATH,AND HAVE BEEN SENT TO DALLAS TO LOOK FOR NEW TALENT" OR "WE CAN RECORD YOUR ALBUM AND GET YOU GIGS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY" OR MY PERSONAL FAVORITE "YEA WE'VE PROMOTED FOR THIS SHOW FOR A MONTH STRAIGHT IT'S GONNA BE PACKED!"
I'M CURRENTLY IN THE COLAB BAND "GROOVE CRUSHER" PLAYING DRUMS,AND PRODUCING THE ALBUM WITH KEVIN ADAMS.I ALSO RHYME WITH "YOHONIUS"& "ACE" IN THE "GIANTS IN THE WEEDS" I PREVIOUSLY MC'D IN THE DALLAS HIPHOP BAND F.D.A.P.FROM 1998/2003,AND BEFORE THAT SCRATCHED WAX IN ROCK BAND "RED THRED" I'M NOW MARRIED AND HAVE A PERFECT LITTLE BABY GIRL. UNTIL RECENTLY I HAVE NOT BEEN DOING MUCH MUSIC. I HAVE BEEN JUST HANGING WITH THE FAMILY.MY MOM LEFT HER EARTHLY BODY TO BE WITH MY BROTHER AND JESUS IN HEAVEN.SHE HAD BATTLED CANCER AND IT WON THE WAR FOR HER BODY.I WAS WITH HER IN THE LAST BREATHS. AND I PROMISED HER THAT WOULD KEEP MAKING TRACKS. SHE WAS MY NUMBER ONE FAN,AND ALWAYS FOUND A WAY TO HELP ME WITH MY MUSIC.
THANKS,"GHOST" MIKE HOSSACK
