the lockstocks Short Info

On paper, The Lockstocks may just be a name, but the core intrigue of this particular band is it's members. Around 3 months after being together, the band noticed their stage egos where something of absolute incredibility, they were something else. A collaboration only dreamt about by those in the industry looking for "The Next Big Thing" Excited and aroused the band arrived at the decision to visit established spiritualist, Derek Akoura (Most Haunted) to confirm their hysteria. Sure enough, Akoura confirmed that each band member was in fact the spiritual embodiment of legends that had and come and gone. He claimed Eaton (Drums) possessed the spirit of John Bonham of Led Zeppelin. Evidently the amount of skill and rhythm Eaton posses can only be drawn from the same level of skill Bonham displays in Led Zep'. Swindley (Bass) had the musical flexibility and variety of that John Entwistle (The Who) At the point Akoura requested a brief intervention to regain his strength, naturally, this was a life changing and draining process. He digressed and began channelling Wright (Lead Guitar) to our astonishment, Akoura confirmed yet again that Olly was harnessing the spirit of Hendrix. That's Pablo Hendrix, an old Mexican teacher who taught in Widnes his whole life, and lived out his final years learning old rock and roll tunes on an old guitar. Lastly was McDermott (Vocals) To no surprise, Akoura felt the pure unmistakable spirit of that of Freddie Mercury. Perhaps it was McDermott's astounding 4 octave vocal range. Or maybe it was the tight leather pants, vest and moustache.
The band as it stands continue to write songs of that of the level of Lennon - McCartney, and really only do it for fun. They continue to turn down headlining Glastonburry, Leeds, Redding, and refuse to go on tour, so don't try booking them. With that said, its always worth a try.
