Fiction Switch / Merry Bomb
I think Rick Devon is an exceptionally gifted songwriter. That's why I was honored when he asked me to be the drummer in his band. It's hard to believe that was nearly 20 years ago.
Originally named Merry Bomb, the band evolved over the years with new members and new compositions, leading ultimately to a name change in November 2001. The new name, Fiction Switch, was unveiled in conjunction with the release of the band's CD, Welcome to This Picture.
Two of the songs from the CD gained national recognition, winning awards in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the Billboard Songwriting Contest.
