there was a creek flowing through the land of Max.
And it was good.
Hence the name Max Creek,
a little town nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
When suddenly,out of the darkness,
a burnt out kid named John Rider
with 174 curly haired relatives.
Carrying his Green Stamp guitar,
a Stromberg-Carlson radio(the first amp)
and a suction cup microphone,
he followed his stars north to Connecticut.
With fates ordained,
the band that came to be as Max Creek was formed in Spring 1971.
