#1. What’s with the name?
Don’t look for any deep meaning in their name. Anytime anyone asks where it came from, the band will give you a different story. No one’s ever been able to deduce the truth.
Here is one story:
#2. Before the fame…
If you ever need some plumbing work done, singer Matt Schultz is your man. That’s how he used to make a living before the band took off.
And while we’re on the subject of home repairs, bass player Daniel Tichenor used to work at Lowe’s. Other guys in the band worked in a sandwich shop and a pet store.
#3. Medical trouble
Jared, the drummer, suffered a burst appendix while the band was on tour with the Foo Fighters. He was forced to miss some shows, but the band kept playing.
How? Dave Grohl filled in.
