Most young musicians were introduced to their musician friends by means of a junior high music program. We all had our influences that shaped our musical tastes before we stepped through the band room doors. Before and after rehearsals, on marching band competition trips, I’d have some time to discuss “Beatles or Stones?” with my friends with an appreciation for the rock and roll rhythm section. A couple conversations turned into plans to jam after school, learn some cover tunes, and start writing our own material. A band was brought forth into the world, and it was called King’s English.
