It all started when Marcel was looking for a new project to record and tour with an original band. He was looking for something that had an edge to it, melodic and good rhythms. He had gotten in touch with an old band member named John Irwin who grew up listening to people like Paul Stanley and Freddy Mercury. John happened to be jamming out some originals with a friend names James Doyle and they asked Marcel a few times to come out but their schedules were very busy and were not coinciding with one another. Until one weekend and they finally got together in James’s basement. They started jamming out some covers to start off with then tried to play some originals waiting for Marcel to jump in. Luckily for Marcel he had a lot of experience in different styles in the 15 years he has been performing. His influences were the likes of Terry Bozzio and Mark Zonder and James also had influences of the likes of Eddy Van Halen and Ace Frehley they gelled together like it was meant to be. Now they needed a bassist whom they’ve been searching for quite a while and John brought in Martin Fillion who is a guitar player but an excellent bass player as well. He brought in his style of Cliff Burton and other rock influences making him fit right in. After about a year they’ve been seriously rehearsing they thought of names but nobody could agree on them. Till one day Marcel mentioned the acronym T.H.C. but nobody had a clue what it meant till a month down the road and John said, “What do you think of To Have Control? “ Everyone that heard the name loved it, so it was written in stone and that is how the band T.H.C. (TO HAVE CONTROL) was born in the fall of 2002. In their spare time they all like to play pool, watch movies and the Simpsons for a good laugh.
