Hot Snakes - Audit In Progress
John Reis fills a void. It's a cynical world and there aren't many true believers in rock & roll anymore. He's the carnival barker that lures you into rock & roll. He believes in rock & roll wholeheartedly and wants you to believe too. He's a genius at guitar riffs. He's evidence that rock & roll is not played out.

I'm one of the ones that think John Reis and Rick Froberg are better together than apart. But Hot Snakes has two drummers that I love, so they win out over Drive Like Jehu. As of now, Drive Like Jehu, Rocket From The Crypt and Hot Snakes are all active. Do what'chu gotta do, man.
