I believe he grew up in Highfield area of Butler/Lyndora and moved to Mechanicsburg when he was 8.

I wonder if he still has family here.

His real last name was eastern European and I surmise his family came here in the early 20th century to work at Pullman.

Bret made his return to Butler on November 23, 2006 and played at the Days Inn on Route 8 as a benefit concert for the South Butler Fire Hall. Here is a video from it.

He grandparents lived on or near Bartley Ave. He spent summers here and always said he was going to be a rock star.

I remember the time me, Bret, and Joey Lawrence went to the 'old' mall - people were in awe of our star status.
