Profile In 2001 Ernest Robert Boetz formed the solo project Boetz and with original drummer of The Brass Tim Golden, recorded the critically acclaimed album “Call to Arms”. During his years with The Brass E.R.B. had befriended Lemmy Kilmister of the legendary rock band Motorhead. Lemmy agreed to sing a duet on the album’s athemic title track leading the album to receive rave reviews in the international rock press (Read Articles). Apon recruiting former Family Jewels drummer and Augusta, GA native Pat Turner (later drummer for The Hot Rods and The Issues), Lucky Forrester on lead guitar and J.C. Keever on bass Boetz began playing throughout the southeast opening for national acts including .38 Special and Nashville Pussy.

Forrester eventually left and another guitarist was needed. In 2002 Boetz released the 4 song CD featuring the songs “Southern Tears” and the chopper riding anthem “Oh Hell Yeah!”. Turner’s balls-out drumming and Boetz’s ripping guitars led this disc to also receive rave reviews in the rock press (Read Articles).  Guitarist Tarmon Kelling did a stint with the band, then Dan Grayshock joined on lead guitar and Keever left to be replaced by Atlanta area bass player Derrick “D-Rock” Thomas. Boetz continued to play the Atlanta and southeastern region. Fans of Bad Company, Aerosmith, Ted Nugent, and Dokken will truly enjoy this gem.
