I think the Subverts were
huge influence on all 3 of us in Ring 13. Steve Ross gave Scott his first bass which he learned how to play
and used it his whole time in ring 13. As well as Steve singing for us whenI though I no longer could sing
those songs, good job Steve! Steve got us the gig with Articles of Faith(after Blatant Dissent couldn't do the gig) flyer attached
Brian Green- was just a super nice guy whom I believe came to see us play at the No Nukes Festival in Dekalb...we played the Subverts
Radiation Nation that day.
Greg Cress- a great guy and a guitar influence on us all, especially on my guitar playing at the time, as important as Johnny
Ramone and Ross the boss for me.
Mike Crown- another Subvert who kept Ring 13 going after Dan left for a wrestling scholarship in Nebraska. Mike and
Dan are totally differenct as far as styles are concerned, but both great drummers. We used to rehearse at Mike's house and one day after the
Replacements played at 3 in the afternoon in Dekalb, Paul came to Mike's house where Ring 13 where playing...I'm sure Paul
had no clue who we were...dope anyone?
No a dis on Paul, just think that is what he was looking for, but we as big fans were happy he was there, kind of like
the Replacements opened for us...not really.
Brian Green- vocals
Mike Crown- drums
Greg Cress- guitar
