☆ History of Nawgahyde
As Legend Has It...
The band was formed by Houston Texas and his guitar playing brother Fort Worth along with their cousin Skeeter on drums. After a few rehearsals the band noticed that "somethin' sounded funny." It was soon discovered the band had no bass player & at that moment step-brother Florida Lee was added to the line up.
A few years later, the band was on the cusp of "makin' it big" when tragedy struck. At a fourth of July barbeque, Fort Worth, in an effort to impress family and friends, tried an outlandish practical joke that went horribly wrong. Houston recalls, "All I remember is Fort Worth standing there with a can of beer in one hand and a roman candle in the other. I'll never forget his last words... 'Hey, watch this!'"
Determined to keep rolling, the band soon added guitarist Nacho, who they found standing outside of a local hardware store looking for employment. Incidentally, this store was later franchised and eventually became part of the chain known as Home Depot.
