His early days were spent in a small New England town full of “Small new England People” whom he had “great difficulty communicating with,” as he puts it. His early teens found him running away from home for search of adventures and the way of life he sought. Living first in Greenwich Village, then moving west, seeking out what he considered to be real life. He worked in the fields harvesting tobacco and following crops with the migrants. He has been a professional rodeo rider, a truck driver, dishwasher, carnival worker, bodyguard, just to name a few. All the time he was constantly searching out new music and influences. After hitch-hiking the entire North American Continent, he settled in Denver, Colorado for a period of time, did another short sprint on the road, then returned eastward coming to Boston two years ago. He has since made Boston his home, occasionally going on cross country trips in any one of the fantastic number of $50.00 cars he has owned. Situations such as these have made his exploits somewhat legendary. Recalling them Brockett simply says, “I went a lot of places, and did a lot of things, not because I had to, but because I wanted to.
