Lynnwood Presley King (vocals)
"He makes the show," The Kid says. "We write our music and then he comes back and puts his spin on it. Without his lyrics and conviction, we wouldn't be where we are."

Dibby Disaster (lead guitar)
"He's the comic relief and the most positively minded person in this band," King says. "His charisma and playing makes us a better band."

The Kid (guitar)
"He brings a lot of wisdom," says King. "When there are situations where I want to cut [Dibby's] head off, The Kid is the one who stops me. No matter what's going on, you can always count on his riffs."

Johnny Lightning (drums)
"He is the one with the harshest truths," says King. "He always says what we honestly need to hear, and he's a terrific drummer."

Gulie Vargulish (bass)
"He's the most compassionate, loving guy in the band," says King. "He will do anything for you. If you need someone to talk to, he's there for you. If you're down, he's there to lift you up. When we are tired and we can't drive at night, he is the one that gets up and drives." "Plus," adds Lightning, "he's an amazing bass player."
