Gregory A. McVey-Russell, or less ostentatiously gar, was born in 1965 in White Memorial Hospital, meaning he truly was born in East LA.  He was then raised in South Central LA.  And yes, he continues to call it South Central.  He bumbled around at UCLA for a few years then ended up in the Oakland where he’s lived since 1989.  He writes and plays tabla.
