Anton B Rich has returned for his second stint as the Bassist for Traveler in Pain after a previous stint in 2003, at which time he was responsible for co-writing several tracks on the Paths of Sorrows, Roads to Pain... album and creating the demoes we used to prepare and construct the songs on the album. He is a veteran of the local scene and is one of the two people I actually give credit for discovering me back in 1987. In his own words- "I've been a working musician for quite some time. I've played and continue to play many different styles of music but my love for Rock 'n Roll and all forms of Heavy Metal will never die!!! Horns up!!! \m/
Over the years i've had the ultimate honor of sharing the stage with many awesome musicians. Been part of countless projects. Enjoyed every single one of them and have maintained lifelong friendships through them. You All Rock!!

I think the ultimate good way is to take the high road in life. We've all had good and bad things happen in our lives. A lot of times, when things don't go our way, it's understandable why people become negative, or bitter, or cynical about something, but hopefully, they say that "time heals," and I do believe that's true. Hopefully, we all get to that place in our lives when we look back at our experiences, and we try to remember the positive and the better things about them, rather than the negative and bad things about them. We do get affected by what happens in a given situation, but we make the conscience choice about how we wanna deal with those experiences. If we want to turn them into a learning experience, and be able to look back on the accomplishments and things we've done in our lives, and maybe crack a smile, that's hopefully what we should ALL be able to do. We're supposed to learn from life and learn from our experiences.
