Rory Brendon Barker........
An untold side.......
Of course, the man that you’ll see almost in every gig especially punk rock. The man who loves to rock all night long. The man who sold his soul to Rock 'N Roll!
Rory is a jovial and supportive man as far as we know. He has never turned down on good gigs. Rory is more than just a friend. Rory is one of the special people. He is considered a family to most but to one of us, he is like a brother from heaven and hell.
You will never see him once having a gloomy or even fucked up face. All he knows when he's there with you is to make you smile and happy. If you can ever see him having gloomy face during gigs or just a normal chill sesh, tell us and we will buy you a beer.
A smart lad with a vision and mission in life. A bassist for a band called Thambi K Seow. An entertainer. A host. You name it, he has it. His passion for music is impeccable. Rory who has hosted for One Jam Productions before in various jam nights and also hosted for Gold Data Music & Events at Little Island Brewing Co. He has shown his utmost respect & responsibility in the execution of his job.
However, like other people, Rory too has his own issues. It's fucking sad to see or hear people took advantage of this bloke. Despite his fucking issues, Rory is always optimistic. All these people or situation were not given a chance to fuck with Rory because they know it's not easy.
Well everyone or almost everyone can say "Rory drinks a lot" or "he's an alcoholic". Well firstly define alcoholic. An alcoholic is when the moment you wake up, you have to take a sip in order to get you moving. Rory isn't like that. He is just normal people like us who wakes up every morning to find a decent breakfast. Alcohol is just a past time for Rory. Some people misunderstood him and worst-case scenario, he was judged by some. The question is why befriended Rory when you're gonna judge him? We don't find a good reason for anyone to do it.
Sometimes you just have to sit with Rory and talk to him. Rory is a smart man. He is even wiser than you thought he was. His level of intelligence surprised one of us when he spoke with Rory for the first time. Rory plans to make a change not only in his life but to others too. People always learned that don't sit around and waste time talking bullshits. We can assure you that with Rory, aside from jokes, nothing is meaningless.
In fact, if you sit with him, you don't wanna go home because there are more and more things for you to talk. Your brain will be cracked fucking open and let all the ideas flow in. This bloke has to experiences that you wanna listen and learn from. We vouch for Rory.
Ask yourself a question. Don't you want to have a friend who is not only an understanding bloke but also someone who can give you ideas to the solutions to your fucking problems? We let you answer that.
Go on add him in his Social media and follow his journey. Have a talk with him. You'll never regret it.
