So he bought me a beer and told me to write something. Might have been the buzz, but Syzlak had a pretty interesting story. Back when communism was cool and musicians played instruments his parents sent him to the UK to study insurance. Ruther, he lived a typical student life with his Australian friend. One day the Australian opened the window, threw all his books and papers out and left for good. A couple weeks later Syzlak made a more discreet exit and boarded a ferry to Paris with 10 pounds in his pocket. He spent the next X amount of years traveling from Europe to North and South America – waiting tables, washing dishes and working on yachts. One yacht dropped him off in the American South and he roamed around for a while, ending up at a huge and illegal music festival in Toronto. Coming across the border at Niagra he was arrested under an obscure law for having less than $10 in his pocket. They kept him in jail with the hippies for 3 weeks and then deported him back to Sri Lanka. And that is a story of Mr. Syzlak. Here are four questions with the above.
