Seen and Heard

David Brooks wasn’t the only shaggy-haired teen who’d ever dreamed of tearing through a frenzy of power chords as a member of the Ramones. The difference is, he grew up andgot to do it — well, kind of. When the band’s long-time drummer, Marky Ramone, auditioned singers to perform with him for a concert at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum following his band’s 2002 induction, Brooks landed the gig. “I was really nervous,” he recalls. “It’s a big misconception that the songs are really easy.” After that, he touredthe United States, Europe and South America with Marky Ramone and Friends. But Brooks, a 36-year-old husband and father, has hung up his leather jacket for now. As artistic director at Prive Hair Salon in Rocky River, you won’t find him sporting the Ramones’ signature bowl haircut, either. “I don’t think it’s that flattering,” he says. “It almost looks like Dora the Explorer.”

Terence haynesFirst he lost
200 pounds. Then Terence Haynes (above, right) decided the rest of his life needed a makeover. So he enrolled at Baldwin-Wallace College and joined the wrestling team — at age 45. “My first reaction was, Man, this is a miracle,” Haynes says of joining the squad. “My second reaction was, Man, this is crazy.” Haynes has had to take Epsom salt baths just to make it to the next practice and, at press time, has won just two matches. “He’s got the age factor working against him,” says head coach Rich Fleming. “But he’s got the desire.” For Haynes, it’s about being an inspiration: “Part of me really feels like I’ve been planted here to help other people.”
