BMX – TCU TV – The John Hicks Interview. Subscribe: http://bit.ly/1gYdZLu
Believe it or not, this is one of the most asked for interviews in the history of TCU TV. I’m not sure what it is, but there’s something about John Hicks‘ work that makes people curious about him. Typically John keeps his cards close to his chest, so up until now anyone interested in John would have had a hard time finding much out. But throughout the course of this interview I got into the mind of Mr. Hicks with some help from my esteemed co-hosts, Nigel Sylvester and Xavier Wulf and the result is the story of a kid from Long Beach who has lived a remarkable life even in the short time he’s been on Earth. Ladies and gentlemen it is my pleasure to introduce you to one of the best people I have ever known, John Hicks.
