It's happened several times over the years where I'll make a new friend and eventually learn something about them that I had never suspected or found really interesting. Buddy of mine used to write and produce documentaries in the 70's and worked with a few celebrities. Another lady I know grew up in a very dysfunctional situation and her childhood home is now a state park. Was talking to another friend today and found out he was a member of a death metal band in the UK in the 80's and 90's that was part of the early rise of the genre in Europe. He's the most mild-mannered little chap with an English accent and I've known him for a couple of years. His group was Chapel of Rest. Here's a video for those of you who like that sort of thing. I don't, but he was the lead guitarist and I can appreciate his skill. Any stories of friends you have who have an interesting past?
