Mike's Rants

The Name of the Rose - Story of the Thugz


The Thugz! ? Yes, the Thugz. It's always interesting when our band ventures into a new geographical area and some folks react vwith horror to our "name". To our local fans and ourselves it is such a non issue. How did we end up- with this moniker anyway? Well, long, long ago in a bar not so far away.....

Good Guys


Hi Y'all,

  Well, iguess it's time to start ranting. Because things have been quite hectic & busy lately (a new grandson! & we are in the middle of moving up the road) I'll take the easy way out for now. Go to the following link and enter the code for a free download of a song called "Good Guys"  that the thugz have been playing. So far it is an unrecorded political rant. The version here is a rough one man band version.
