These four Carrollton,Ga. Natives were born and raised about 45 miles west of Atlanta,Ga. ^#^and grew up listening to rock, the blues and country on the radio, and say they were influenced by artist such as Elvis, lynyard Skynard, ZZ top, and Van Halen. The bass player and part-time madman Tracy Hosey who once rode a Harley inside a convience store is responsible for the band name. It all happened when he caught a wild possum with his bare hands and turned it loose in our band house says singer Eugene, and that name has stuck with us since, and just like a possum we are wild and unpredictable and we love a good time!
