The Deadlights

Formed in 1998, The Deadlights where an alternative/ hard rock/ nu-metal band from California. Named after Steven King's vision of the light that you see before you die, the band members consisted of Duke on vocals and guitar, Jimmy Falcon on drums, Billy Roan on guitars, and Jerry Montana (currently with Nothingface and Hell Yeah) on bass. Their biggest accomplishment as band came in 2000 when they were invited to perfom on Ozzfest's second stage.

Named after Steven King's vision of the light that you see before you die, the band members consisted of Duke on vocals and guitar, Jimmy Falcon on drums, Billy Roan on guitars, and Jerry Montana (currently with Nothingface and Hell Yeah) on bass. Their biggest accomplishment as band came in 2000 when they were invited to perfom on Ozzfest's second stage. Following this stint on Ozzfest and the release of their self titled album in 2000, the band quickly crumbled and broke up in late 2000 citing discrepancies amongst band members and industry troubles. Duke released a statement in early 2001 about the bands sudden breakup.

"Peace to Jim, Jerry and Billy, and much respect goes out to them and whatever they do. As for me, I would like to finally thank all you fans who stuck by us, and continue to show your support for what we were trying to do. It's unfortunate that conditions that we had to face as a band made it impossible for us to keep making music together, but oh, well, fuck everyone. As for shit talkers, you can all suck a fat dick. I never gave a fuck about being a rock star, I just wanted to fuck shit up any way I could and will continue to do that. Besides, jealousy will get you nowhere. The real sick motherfuckers know who you are. I'm putting together a new thing, which like everything I've ever done, will be a progression of what I've always been trying to do, which is fuck with your heads any way I can. We all know the record business sucks , but you can't kill what's already dead. DEADLIGHTS rule..
