Lou Castro started his musical career as a child dragging his Mickey Mouse record player behind his bicycle by its power cable in Philadelphia, PA. He soon graduated to the broom, then the badminton racket and then the tennis racket. He took classical piano lessons from age nine until eleven when he picked up a REAL guitar.
