1994 when i first met him , looking at him would only bring up the word NERD in my mind … But i knew he had something special in his life & i never thought we’d be best friends .
We went school together 7th – 12th grade , same classes … i was the bad guy , well lets just not put it that way (heh) i liked sitting @ the back of the class with the bad guys , careless about grades subjects etc …
Alaa was the one who put me in front next to him , He pulled me out of there grabbed an extra chair and fixed a place next to him …
i was a math guru … not even close , then how i survived my horrible maths classes ? Alaa’s free tuitions , without him i would still be in school . ohh god we did everything together , i still own few recordings of him and i singing in 1997 i believe … no i wont post that LOL !
Alaa is now @ Boston , Getting his Masters in Marketing & Advertisement , well something like that .
Anyhow , this guy is a music genius , you should listen to his lyrics & music , gosh i cant believe he reached this level of “profesionality” .
As Quoted by Victor Alfredo““When I first heard him playing Redheaded Woman, I thought: this boy has a terrible broken heart disguised behind a smile that never leaves his face! With very strong lyrics and soft touches on his acoustic guitar, he shocked me when he told me that this is song is actually his! How on earth can a guy from Bahrain – who spent his entire 25 years in his home country – come up with such a western folk song!?”
