I’d like to thank everyone for the generous donations. This story has been so much fun to share and thank you for making it possible. It’s only just beginning.
Remember anyone that donates or buys anything from my eBay store is entered to win a guitar and lesson from Rontrose. If there’s anyone that’s interested in sponsoring a segment or chapter or just having their name or business name on this site please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org
On August 7th 2010, in Los Angeles, CA, Rontrose talked about the history of the Supersuckers.
In this first of many more interviews to come, he talks about Eric Martin. Below is a quote from the bands bio written by Eddie Spaghetti.
We formed the band in 1988 and we were initially a five piece called The Black Supersuckers (a name found in some quality “adult literature” we had laying around in our impeccably clean band house), with me on bass, Dan “Thunder” Bolton and Rontrose Heathman on guitars, Dancing Eagle on drums and a lead singer by the name of Eric Martin. After firmly proving ourselves to be the best band in town we decided it was time to get out of Tucson and try our luck somewhere else. So we tossed a coin with heads as New Orleans and tails as Seattle. Tails it was and in May of ‘89 we packed up and went north.
