One day, some time ago, well-seasoned players of the Rock and Roll, Guitar Player Mike Stoxx and Drummer Lou From Peru decided to join forces and resurrect a previously abandoned musical project known as The Morbids. It's been a great ride so far, of course not without some bumps in the road. Our original bassist, Dave Schultz (formerly of Hobilly), came down with some serious health complicatio...ns and had to remove himself from the line-up. Next to be added was Ralph Augustus Parker lll. He jumped in on a strictly voluntary and temporary basis to help The Morbids fulfill any live performance obligations. He worked out quite well. Now we have newly acquired bassist, "Sticky" Steve Morbid Merrill as he likes to call himself, formerly the guitarist of the young Kentucky punk band, The Cooties. At only 19 years of age, Steve has answered the call with the precision of someone well beyond his years. A nice new addition. This guy is like a sponge, and that's a good thing.
Moving along to Rhythm Guitar duties, we first had Matt Ribarsky who provided practice space and dinner via his female companion for The Morbids, and for that we will always be grateful. Matt has an awesome Metal-type style to his playing which he decided wasn't a good fit for The Morbids. I'm proud to say that Matt and his better half, Jackie are proud new parents. We wish them the best of luck. Moving right along, we now have Tim Ebben (formerly of The Hypochondriacs). We dragged this man out of retirement, and he was only to happy to oblige.
Now we're happy to say that The Morbids are firing on all cylinders.
Time to ROCK!!!! Come join us.
Lou From Peru.
