Not many punk or rock punk bands raised eyebrows quite like Lonesome Kings. Formed in the early days of 1999 by Greg Lonesome, the all-boys band brought together four music talents: Greg on vocals, Mr. Right Now on electric bass, Quickdraw on drums, and Doc Holliday on guitar.
The quadruple gigged frequently in local pubs, events, and clubs before making their foray into the mainstream music scene. Although Doc Holliday and Quickdraw left, Lonesome Kings made an incredible comeback in January of 2001with “Handsome” Johnny Hormone on drums and Reverend Repulsive on guitar.
