If my "handle" didn't give it away, I was in the band. The drummer, no less, but in the band (I know, I know, drummers are expendable). We played the Gold Dollar one time - with the Wildbunch, I think. It's funny, because we never really tried to have any sort of success (and it's debatable that we had any), but we never seemed to find a niche in Michigan. We played in Michigan several times, but the kids just didn't ever really get into it. Maybe Michiganders are smarter than most, but we always did well in Green Bay, Chicago, Columbus, and a few other cities. Strange. I'm definitely not saying we were any more than "average", but it's just funny that you saw us at different Michigan venues and were not "blown away". We killed at the Rip Off Rumble - but I think Greg Lowery might have bribed the audience. Did you ever yell "Detroit Double Cheeseburger" at a show? I'm sure we would have laughed, or Tom would have had some snide remark. We never really took any of it seriously, which is good (and appropriate). In any case, I haven't listened to the millionaires' stuff in quite a while, but I might just have to pull out our 2nd single now - for old times sake.
