PunkNet77 - Electric Eels


Maybe not so important band itself, but the guys who played in Eels later played in many interesting bands. The original line-up of this band from Cleveland was: Nick Knox (drums), John Morton (guitar), Brian McMahon (guitar) ja Dave McManus (also know as Dave E; vocals). Only John Morton had played in a band before Eels. After first single Knox left the band and in came Anton Fier, also Jim Jones (keyboards, bass) joined the band. And in some stage also Paul Marotta and Jamie Klimek played guitar in E.E.
