"My cousin came over and said, 'You ain't gon' lift them weights,'" Fisher remembers, snickering. "He said, 'I'll trade you my bass, my amp, and I'll throw in this collection of rock records I ain't gon' listen to no more.' And it had Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, Mountain, Chicago, the first Funkadelic, and a bunch more.

"For a long time, I hadn't seen that cousin. But a couple years ago, we had Thanksgiving at his house, and he said, 'I guess you put that bass to good use.' And I was like, 'Thanks for giving me my life, man. I love my life.'"

You got one part wrong. There are three founding members in the band. "Dirty" Walt Kibby rejoined the fold a few years ago.
