Early Slip days

Postby Kevin_Kjr » Tue Jul 31, 2018 1:12 pm

Was reading about how there were several members in The Slip before Andrew, Brad, and Marc. Does anyone know any of the history of the band when it first started out?

DB- You mentioned that you met Andrew and Brad in high school. That is when you joined the Slip but none of you are original members of the group, right?

MF- Ahh, you know the secret. The Slip started as an institution at the high school before we even attended. It was primarily a cover band. The personnel changed as people graduated. There was one guy named John Myers who was in the original band and he stayed the longest, for about 4 years, which is a long time in high school years. It was a cover band until 93 when Brad and Andrew joined. It was a large band with maybe six people doing classic rock: Steppenwolf, CCR, just the faves. Andrew and Brad have been playing together they whole lives and they’ve always had original music. I can remember watching on the sideline, thinking they were great when it was Brad, Andrew, John and a friend of theirs from Providence, Adam Mutterpurl. Meanwhile I was playing with Brad, Andrew and John in the jazz band or just jamming. They started writing originals and that’s what changed the Slip. Somewhere along the way they invited me to join.
