Transcript With graduation just around the corner, Philip Poe had the world on his shoulders. But senior year wouldn't have been half as exciting to Poe if he didn't have MUSIC IN HIS LIFE Finally done! Philip Poe inspects his diploma following his spring 2003 graduation. Poe juggled school work with music and an internship during his final semester at UH. photo by Dixie Ann Dalton L Philip Poe was a graduating broadcast journalism major in the spring of 2003, but earning a degree from UH was only one of his goals. Poe, 22, pursued another of his passions, music, when school was out. Poe's band, The Bell Curve, released their self-titled debut CD during the 2002 - 2003 school year. The band, together for six months, consisted of Poe on vocals and bass guitar, Ronnie Spozio on guitar and background vocals and Bill Schmitz on drums. Poe, the band's songwriter, has actually been playing the guitar for ten years. "But when I heard Ronnie play the guitar, I decided that maybe I needed to learn how to play the bass. Whenever Ronnie played, there was really no other room for any other guitar moves," Poe said. "I mean, I'm good, but he's really good!" During spring 2003, Poe worked at the Fox Sports Studio, doing a production internship. He often interviewed athletes, edited video footage and gathered other information and ideas for stories. "My ideal job would be playing with a band. If there comes a time where I can do music full time, then that's what I'm going to do. But I'm not going to give up on everything else and just sit and wait on a music career to happen," Poe said. Poe went to work, went to class, exercised, then headed home in time to see 'The Simpsons," "King of the Hill" and 'That 70's Show." "For fun I like to go out to eat Mexican Food. I have this fixation with enchilada gravy. I have to have it once a day," Poe said. To relax, Poe also attended concerts. "I love the Counting Crows," he said. Poe boasted quite a collection of musical instruments, including six guitars, one mandolin and one bass guitar. "I grew up on classic rock because my parents were both fans of that genre. The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Genesis, to be exact," Poe said. "As I got older, I got into the grunge thing, but grunge hasn't influenced me as much as the classic rock artists. The classic rock influences are more likely to come through in my songwriting." by Dixie Ann Dalton Man's best friend Poe plays guitar in his living room after a full day of school and work. The 22-year-old found time for music even with graduation looming. photo by Dixie Ann Dalton "My work is never done" Poe puts what he learned as a broadcast journalism major to work at his Fox Sports internship. He dreamed of finding success with his music but opted to stay practical in his career choice, photo by Dixie Ann Dalton mmmmmw]
