Singer and lead guitarist, Kurt Shobe, has been quoted saying, "Be a good person, be honest, have integrity, value and protect your reputation at all costs. Be someone that others want to emulate. Be able to sleep at night because your conscience is clear. I was the big brother, so I learned early what it means to be a leader. I am so thankful that after all the ups and downs, I can say we are still doing it!”
THIS IS STEEL SKARECROW.
