Caley Cook of SLAMM San Diego chatted with Rick Froberg of the Hot Snakes who are a collection of local bands whose members all knew each other. “When Hot Snakes got together, everybody was in a band or knew each other from bands they were in before. John [Reis] and I were in Drive Like Jehu and we’ve known each other and played together for quite a while. Jason [Kourkounis] was in a band called Delta 72 and they were friends with Rocket [From the Crypt]. Gar [Wood] was in Tanner and all these other local bands so everyone’s known each other for a long time. We just decided to play together.” Slammsd.com has since shut down.
