I think they had bad ways with Dozy and Beaky, so they left and joined another band.
I confirm all my information through a high, white whore's souse!

[quote="Ed Joseph"]I give it to 60's Brit band [b]Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich[/b]

They should get back together and go on tour with And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Our Dead.

Of course. Who can forget Simple Minds? Gotta give them credit for honesty. But before that, they called themselves Jerry and the Self Abusers. Probably just as honest.

I always thought a band should name itself this:

Live, Evil and Vile or, perhaps, Vile Evil, Live

(see what I did?)

Some names I always thought would cool for a band: (though what I think is cool and what the rest of the world think is cool is very different.)


Mariah Heep
Maintenance Shed
Dirt Nap
Fritz Chrysler Panty Raid
Hub and Spoke
Mass For Shut Ins (I looked it up. It was taken by a band from Canada.)

Bottoms Up, although Ron Don Volante, their lead singer is certainly something!
