Vince’s Near-Death Experience – A Life Lesson

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.2.2″ text_font=”Roboto|300|||||||” text_text_color=”#eadcbf” custom_margin=”||40px|”]

Only 11 years old Vince is seconds away from death, when he is shocked by electricity through his hands and heart. Later, he writes the song, “5 More Minutes”, about tough experiences that have forced him to fight his way up only to be hit by yet another setback.

It’s autobiographical. All my life I’ve been surprised by the amount of shit I had to go through. Every time I thought things finally were going to be all right. “Bang” the next thing happened. No time to think about it – just deal with it and so I needed to take a deep breath to cope, but I was always fast at pulling myself together – about 5 minutes.
