Cliff 2
Sean Walden
 

Sean- the man who hears the things that no one else does.

Sean can hear a tree fall in the forest when he's nowhere near a forest.

As a baby, he would modify his baby-monitor into a mini PA system that had the same quality and clarity of a Bose system. Actually Bose stole the technology from Sean, but he couldn’t do anything about it because, well, he was a baby. Hard to argue your point in court when you can't articulate in anything other than goo's and ga's. Not to mention the whole diaper thing. DAMN YOU, BOSE!

Sean traveled the world in search of the mysterious “sound” that he heard daily at about 7:45 am. It was a troubling sound that could only be explained as disturbing, yet somehow, soothing. He almost found the sound in Bangladesh. COULD IT BE? NOPE! It was just Das Polka wailing out one of their songs, just like every other morning at 7:45 am. No explaination forthcoming, the source of the morning noises in his head are destined to remain elusive. Like the girl in that Tom Petty song says, "It's just the normal noises in here."

Sean settled down in California for two days to develop his nuclear generator business, but stopped and quickly moved to Jacksonville because of tax purposes. Lets just keep that between us.

The day Sean arrived in Jax, he noticed two guys trying to set up a Radio Shack PA system with the usual tools-of-the-trade- a monkey-wrench and a cordless drill. It was quite the sight to see. He intervened and asked if he could help, as the guys' girlfriends were chuckling at them. Appreciative of Seans' bro-code initiative, they accepted his assistance. With Sean's help, the cheap PA system was assebled and running. He then commenced to "Tweak the Knobs", his specialty, making the crappy PA sound like a $700,000.00 system worthy of Rush, the Foo Fighters or Slim Whitman (a vocally fervent admirer of "Spanky the Band" til his untimely passing in June of 2013. RIP, Slim).

That band was Spanky during their inaugural concert. They asked Sean to come on board as their main sound guy, but he declined. Not until he found the sound that has haunted him for years.

Two days later, Sean found that haunting sound he had spent his early years desparately searching for! Only he can tell you what it is. You'll have to ask him and hope he's in a sharing mood. Since he no longer had a purpose in life, he called the guys at Spanky and agreed to fill the sound position and the rest is... yeah, yeah, you know.

To this day, EVERY top band in the world tries to “steal” Sean from Spanky, but Sean has declined every time because he is dedicated and loyal to the Spanky cause (but mostly due to the incriminating pictures Les has of him).

Sean does not have a degree- his claim to fame is that he trained some guy on how to run sound... this guy later started some school named Full Sail or something. Go figure.
