Michael Ferrari was born and reared in Los Angeles until his dad's job transferred the family to Connecticut. He adjusted and life was good until his dad's job relocated the family again, this time uprooting Michael's ties and landing him at the beginning of his 10th grade year in a small country town, just a blip on the map somewhere in Texas.
"That's where my nightmare began", Michael puts it. A small, fast-talking city kid, he stood out from the crowd, never really fitting in, and became a self-professed "loner." It was during that time that he spent countless hours locked away in his room playing drums. Mike Ferrari played in many bands and eventually his drumming brought him back to L.A.
The music gods led him to Boy Hits Car as they found each other, of all places, in a "Drummer Wanted" ad placed in an L.A. paper. And in February of 1993 Boy Hits Car was born.
