Bio

After their respective bands had been dissolved, the members of Ol' School Johnny went looking for a solution to plug up their souls. They had lost the motivation to live without music. It was a sad and depressing time in the Rogg household. Their lack of music caused financial instability, which in turn drove the bank to begin mailing out nasty letters. Three months later each member was owing three months in back rent yet none of them had a penny in their pockets.

Bruce and Ronnie Rogg sat down and decided that they would suck up their pride and serve their sister, Daisy, in hopes that she had a plan to win them all their bread. Daisy told them that she had spent the last three months thinking and that she could now fix their problems. The solution was simple; find the necessary staff to write the best rock and roll ep the world has ever known, burn shit down and explode ear drums.

It happened when an old family friend of the Rogg's called their house twenty four times before someone answered the phone... but the twenty fourth time was magic. The Rogg family asked Adam Hollyday to bring his drums over to play astoundingly fast music. He brought them over and Bruce, Ronnie and Adam jammed without amplifiers. Daisy came in and added a sultry voice that was both feminine and hostile. The possibilities began to unfold.

Time passed yet the band was unable to find a bassist, well one that was efficient. With his availability slowly declining, Johnny Lukas finally made the decision to go into exile in Mexico, leaving the band once again holding the bag without a bassist.

While hanging out in a shitty dive bar, Bruce began to get bad vibes from the attitude that was flowing around them. It was almost too much. Bottles were spread out over multiple tables, the shrill giggles of beautiful girls pierced the air around him, drowning out the music. Bruce stood up, ready to fight the man who was responsible for noise and debauchery that surrounded him. Bruce walked over to the strangers table, fists raised in the air, ready to strike when he stopped. The two men looked at each. Bruce thought he saw something, in this mans eyes. It was a look of intense determination. Bruce, still holding the bag that Johnny Lukas had left them with, peaked in and saw the future of his new band. It screamed that this man who now stood in front of him, this Edd K, would be their salvation in the form of a bass player.

Five seconds and one question later Edd K was in the band.

Ol' School Johnny now plays screaming ultra rock and roll during the night.... and drinks during the day.
