Sal wears black clothes and likes leather. His ginger penis was used as the scale model of the original micro-ship in the 1967 20th Century Fox feature film, “Fantastic Voyage,” starring Rachel Welsh. Due to a previous conviction, Sal is no longer allowed closer than 150 feet to cows and other attractive farm animals. SoCal musicians in the know, mostly believe that Sal was built in his basement by his incredibly crafty wife, Lorraine, though none believe he’s one of her showcase efforts. “What the heck!’ the beleaguered artist sighed, “Geez, even Leonardo made a few clinkers, now…GET OUTTA MY FACE MOTHE#@UCKER!!” Aside from Lorraine, and his son and daughter, Sal is single. He enjoys living as a confirmed bachelor in Hills of Denial.
