Hello, mouth-breathers. Just wanted to give everybody an update on the latest news concerning your most-favoritest band ever, the Straight Eights.
As some of you may be aware, guitarist and longtime member Brian "Gibby" Gibbons has turned in his keys. No drama, for those of you (assholes) who thrive on that sort of shit. Simply put, other very important aspects of his busy life require more attention, and he punched out. He will always be a key figure in the history and formative years of the band, and we will always call him a friend. Forever an Eight, Gibby!
He also leaves behind him a big pair of shoes to fill. Yes, we kept the kid's fucking shoes. They're Italian leather. However, those shoes have recently been stuffed with a new set of foots.
Please welcome Keith Genest to the fold. Keith has been playing longer than most of you have had pubes, and was a member of Four Speed Fury with our other guitarist Robb "Bones" Lioy. Dude knows his shit. He's picking shit up damned fast and quickly proving his mettle. We look forward to removing his shackles and unleashing him on all of you very soon. We know you'll welcome him with open arms.
With that being said, keep an eye out... we have a number of gigs on the horizon, and you won't want to miss them!
