Remember where you were the first time you heard OTYP??? Raz played in bands with Neil in High School. Raz,Hutch & Neil would go see Joey Molland when Badfinger was playing in the New York/New Jersey area. They would go see Joe Vitale when he toured with Joe Walsh in the New York/New Jersey area. The Capital Theatre, Academy Of Music, Joint In The Woods, The Jersey Shore,Asbury Park, Atlantic City. Raz & Hutch went to L.A.(winter in Jersey sucks). They formed the band "The Contents", played all over LA: Madame Wongs East & West, Troubadour, Whisky, The Central, Gazzaris, and many other clubs. The Contents disbanded and then some of The Contents formed "The Raz Nasty Band" They made records/cds , videos, , kept playing live around town, Started to play colleges. Then one night at Filthy McNasty's , Raz Nasty became "RAZ". Jim Manzo joined the band. Joey Molland would either play guitar, sing or produce RAZ. Joe Vitale would either play keyboards, drums, sing or produce RAZ,(lots of history here)(how they came to play with RAZ is another story). Then Raz & Hutch went back to New Jersey for their High School reunion. Being the kind of fellas that they are they played at the reunion. Neil played bass and brought Frankie to play guitar. Now the band was evolving into more than RAZ. Meanwhile back in L.A. Joe Vitale Jr. started to record with RAZ. Yep, the band was still evolving, so Raz ( who is Michael) said to Hutch (who is Jeffrey) that they should come up with a new band name, Hutch agreed. Then one day Raz played the new songs for a record company executive who said," I love these songs, this is a great band, but your'e to old to sign. Why don't you find some 20 year olds, teach them the songs and I'll sign them." It was then that Raz came up with the new name for the band:"Older Than Your Parents". He asked Hutch what he thought, Hutch laughed ,(which is the normal reaction to the name) and said ok. So "Older Than Your Parents" were born! The End . P.S. This is a true story.
