Chris Watrous

Of Standing Damaged
Saturday, June 28th
@ Jeannie?s Bottle


    1. Who is Standing Damaged anyway ?

    We are Standing Damaged,
    a local cover band that has been threw various member changes and a lot of ups and downs but are finally getting the succes i think we have
    for the most part-EARNED..

    2.  Where is the band
    going from here?
    (what's your next move?)

    Not sure, cause you never know when we are gonna switch guitar players.  But I would say we are prolly the most solid we have been and look forward to adding new tunes.  My biggest gripe about local cover bands are that they play the same shit over and over, I am constantly riding the guys
    to learn new tunes to keep
    it fresh and fun!

    3. Tell us one interesting fact about Standing Damaged and each of it's members.

    Tell us one interesting fact about Standing Damaged and each of it's members.
    -Standing Damaged has consisted of myself, T-dawg, Ick and Eric for the entire
    ride but we have been thru 4 guitar players.  Something about a good LEAD guitar player makes them sometimes hard to get along with. The interesting facts(i hope) are
    ----------
    Chris-would do all Kiss and AC/DC if I could, and with
    the right lead player would love to do some originals,
    but they would have to have a little 80's feel to them!
    ----------
    Ick-has 2 younger brothers that play in pretty big local bands DEFied and Index Case
    ----------
    Eric-can play anything and
    is about the most loyal and nicest guy you could meet-BUT DONT HAVE A BAND DISCUSSION WITH
    HIM PRESENT YOU CANT GET A WORD IN!
    -----------
    T-dAWG-brings the young fresheness to the band(Seether, Korn, Godsmack, Audioslave,
    Stone Sour, ETc......
    -----------
    Gary-the old man can play!
