Marc Hawthorne was born in California and he will most likely die in California, perhaps in a 9.0 temblor that drops the entire state in the Pacific. In the meantime, he loves living in San Francisco, a.k.a. the best place on Earth, where it’s easy being a vegetarian and all of his favorite bands visit while on tour. He chose writing as his primary form of communication because he tends to freak out onstage, but he did enjoy the time he interviewed Nick Drake’s sister and producer at the Herbst Theatre. Marc is a Pisces, which tells you nothing about him, and he’s an A’s fan, which explains everything.
