to play the guitar simply by listening to records, and he never received any formal training whatsoever. He actually set his
sights on becoming a professional football player as a youth, and he even scored a football scholarship to the University
of Hawaii. However, he suffered an injury and was derailed from ever pursuing a career in sports. This marked a turning point
in Henry's life, and he soon drifted back towards his love of music.
