The Motherfuckers originally formed in 1998, with Sean Hunter on guitar, Roger Nilson on bass, Tim Bastard on drums, and Dan Izzo on vocals.
Hunter, Roger and Tim had already been jamming together for some time, but hadn't managed to find a singer.
Sometime in the Spring of 1998 Dan Izzo was brought in. Hunter suggested Dan about six months earlier (and has Tim as a witness to this...) but Roger was against it at the time, then forgot all about it until he thought he'd had the brilliant idea of getting Dan.
There was much rolling of eyes between Hunter and Tim on that day. Izzo was too scared to notice. These guys were OLD. and GRUMPY.
