The Long Ryders
The Long Ryders are: Sid Griffin guitar, harmonica, autoharp, therapy & vocals, Greg Sowders drums, percussion & song publishing, Tom Stevens bass, acoustic bass, computer genius & vocals and Stephen McCarthy main guitar, banjo, mandolin, lap steel & vocals.
Early bass players included Des Brewer and Professor Barry Shank. Larry Chatman played on the band’s final US tour in 1987 but did not record with the Long Ryders although his picture does appear in the original Metallic B.O. cassette. (Shank is now a full professor at Ohio State University and Chatman now is Dr. Dre’s main personal assistant. Obviously leaving the band was a wise career move.)
