Brendan Jones: Questions and Answers
Brendan is known mostly for his style, huge fufanus and massive turndowns. He can also throw down some super mega tricks when needs be. He is another guy who has had a bad run with injuries in particular his knees. Now days Brendan isn't out there trying to kill himself but is still killing it. He has been around the scene for quite a while now so I thought it would be cool to share his view on a few things and got him to answer some questions.
