In the driveway was a 1958 Desoto, in the house a twelve-year-old boy and a dad with a plan. "Will trade 1958 Desoto for electric guitar and amplifier" was how the ad read in the Kansas City Star newspaper. One call came and I went home with a beautiful white Gibson SG Jr. and a Gibson amplifier. That's where it all started and I still have both the guitar and amp to this day.

Founded in the cruel winter of 2007, The Kansas City Bear Fighters first took shape as one lonely man's homage to music as a salve for the soul. Originally, the group performed under the nom de plume "The Denver Broncos" which many considered to be the product of one man's struggling and genius search for a fire that could crack the deep cavernous walls of his soul.
