What's in a name?

Posted By on Fri, Apr 30, 2010 at 4:34 PM

OK, first of all, don’t blame us. It would seem that, in light of the controversy caused by my Hell Drivers feature from March 17th, the band have decided to ditch the Hell Drivers name completely and quit the "Motor City rock revue" format. Instead, they’ll be going out as...
