We started out as the back up band for a punk Psychobilly performer. When that ended we went out on our own with the Rev. as the singer and guitar player. Seemed like the thing to do as The Rev. was writing all the songs , playing guitar, booking shows, promoting.
A couple of chords and a riff. Throw some words in there and Bobs your uncle.
I was driving through the midwest and saw a store front in a truck stop that said Highway Chapel in the window. Thought that's a great name for a band fronted by a guy called The Rev. Rock n Roll Ministry.
We want to leave something behind when we die so we wont be forgotten a week later.
That's for you to figure out from listening to it. That's your job don't be lazy.
I don't know how to do anything else.
Jimi. Cream. Ten Years After. Leslie West. Bowie. Ramones. Sex Pistols. Beatles. Zep. The Who. Johnny Winter. Howlin' Wolf. ZZ Top. Sabbath. Any old dead blues guy. Stones.
Laurel the drummer is very good at arranging my 2 chords and a riff into a real song. I have picked up ideas from her. Aut the bass player I have known since middle school so nothing. We communicate telepathicly.
High Energy. We are gunslingers so we always try to blow the other bands off the stage. And we always do.
Playing in large venues in front of lot's of people.
It's too depressing I don't want to get into it.
It's fun. Facebook for the music inclined.
Trying to gain a following.
When I can. I'm old and tired.
