The Notorious Cherry Bombs Biography
Vince Gill, Tony Brown and Rodney Crowell. You know them well as hitmakers and architects of contemporary country music. But back in the '70s, back in the day, they were the Cherry Bombs. Along with guitar ace Richard Bennett, steel wizard Hank Devito, and the rock-solid rhythm section of Emory Gordy and Larry Londin, they were Crowell's backup band as he struggled to get his career off the ground. As a band, they never had a bit of trouble lifting off; they hit the stratosphere every time they took the stage, and their shows are the stuff of legend. In short, the Cherry Bombs were the coolest, ass-kicking-est country outfit in the land. They burned their collective creative fuse for two raucous and glorious years. Then they were gone, each splintering off find their own kind of (considerable) success in the music.
Despite that success (or maybe because of it) the band - rechristened the Notorious Cherry Bombs - sounded lean, mean, even downright hungry when they reunited to honor Crowell at the 2003 ASCAP Country Awards dinner. From the second they hit the stage, it was as if not a day had passed. The players knew this was no one-off performance.
With The Notorious Cherry Bombs, their long-awaited debut release, the Notorious Cherry bombs are set to restore your faith in great, timeless country music and the exhilarating power of a world-class band. Aided and abetted by keyboardist John Hobbs and a revised rhythm section - session ace Eddie Bayers fills in for the late Larry Londin and Nashville bassist extraordinaire Michael Rhodes sits in for the now-retired Emory Gordy - the Notorious Cherry Bombs took over 20 years to bring you this incredible debut. From start to finish, it was well worth the wait.
