And folks wonder why girls follow bands around...although I tend toward guitar players. Looking mighty hunky there, Steve!

Great photo Steve

Well... I was only with them for a month as a fill-in. At that time I was between bands and their glory days were already behind them. It was definitely fun, though. I had some sort of idea that it might lead to bigger and better things, but it didn't.

As for the name of the band, from what I understand Rob Parissi took the name from a box of Ludens Wild Cherry Cough Drops. Not the sexiest of stories but the most accurate.
