Profile Fifteen Strings hailed from Tennessee and deliever great melodic Hard Rock with strong melodies and great vocals. Chris had been touring with entertainer Joe Savage – who incidentally drove up from Nashville to see him when he was playing with the Flying Monkees at the old Kona Kai Lounge and hired him on the spot – the two guitarist of the group Lust (Kurt Menk and Ken Kennedy) came to see them in a Nashville stint and developed an idea for a group with Chris as front man.

Shortly after leaving the Savage Experience, Chris relocated to Nashville permanently, and was playing with Anthony Crawford when Kurt and Ken approached him with the idea to form a hard rock group lead by a singing rock violinist and in a year’s time they were signed to Atlantic records in New York. Fifteen Strings was simply the number of strings contained in the group.  But, there is a twist here – 2 guitars (lead and rhythm) + violin = 16 strings –  the rhythm guitarist however did not use his high E string  – 1 = 15. 

Kurt and Chris were the primary writers of the group.  Chris focused mainly on lyrics while Kurt focused primarily on riffs that were the germs of songs. Unfortunately for once more the movement of grudge destroy one more promising band.
