the band...a brief history
Josh’s Dad gave him a 1969 Martin guitar. Jayson told Josh that he could sing like that dude in Led Zeppelin. Josh and Jayson wrote some songs. Josh wore a Cure T-shirt. Jake wore a Cure t-shirt. They had no choice, Josh and Jake became friends. Jake had a purple mohawk and said he could play a yellow bass. Jake joined the band.
Josh, Jason, and Jake played music at Josh’s parents house. It was too loud and they were asked to leave. Some drummers tried out; they were late or drunk or bad. One of them had a mullet.
