Richrath Project 3:13 just released their new album "L.A. Is Mine" and to celebrate we have asked Michael Jahnz to tell us about the song "Help Me Save Me from Myself." Here is the story:

In a blink of an eye, a chance meeting in 1988 changed my life forever.

It was an exciting, yet challenging time, moving out to California from the Midwest with my band in 1985. Back then we were progressive rockers in the hairband era, so we were definitely different for the California music scene.
