Fort Worth, TX
Going back a few years we find Andrew and Lance, two high school friends from Cleburne, kicking around in various bands, making a lot of racket for anyone who cares to listen and spending most of their young adult lives in dark, smokey clubs.
Meanwhile in Fort Worth you have Kent and Alex who have been spending their time engaged in similar antics, making a similar racket, very often in the same clubs.
These were, as they say, the salad days.
It should be very obvious to you at this point that the four would eventually pool their collective talents and attempt to create something from them. What may not be so obvious to you yet is just how successful they have been.
