The group is comprised of lead singer "The King," guitarist "Slush," bassist "Stikki Lixx" and drummer "The Kattman." In addition to being inspired by Elvis the guys cite Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Metallica, White Snake, Poison, Bon Jovi, Twisted Sister and Quiet Riot among their influences on their MySpace page.
