What's with the name?

Right around the time I started really getting into music and decided to buy my first guitar, I started sporting Hawaiian shirts and questionable hairstyles.  I showed up at a party with my new look, and loud enough for the entire place to hear, a buddy shouted "Hey everybody! Look! It's Moondoggie".  The nickname stuck. But more importantly, it reminds me of the very first feelings of chasing dreams and wanting to be around music.
