Englishman Haggis (born Stephen Harris) first tasted fame in the mid-'80s when he was going by the handle of Kid Chaos, the bassist for biker rock band Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction. A brief stint as rhythm guitarist in the Cult followed, after which he moved to Los Angeles. In 1988 and Haggis teamed up with singer Frank Starr, lead guitarist Dave Lizmi, bassist Ben Pape, and drummer Ken "Dimwit" Montgomery (ex of Canadian hardcore pioneers D.O.A.) to form the Four Horsemen. Frequent touring followed and did much to streamline the group's live chops, and the Four Horsemen soon set to work on their full-length debut, 'Nobody Said It Was Easy', with producer Rick Rubin. Released by Rubin's Def American label, the record garnered positive reviews and landed them opening slots on tours with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Joan Jett, KISS and labelmates the Black Crowes. The Four Horsemen met with rock & roll tragedy when drummer Dimwit suffered a overdose and died on September 27, 1994. A new album entitled 'Gettin' Pretty Good at Barely Gettin' By' was completed in 1996 by Haggis, Starr, Lizmi, new bass player Pharoah. They also recruited Dimwit's brother, ex-Danzig drummer Chuck Biscuits. Sadly, cruel fate would intervene yet again, when Starr was hit by a drunk driver before the album's release and lapsed into a coma from which he would never recover. Frank Starr died on June 18, 1999. Haggis and Lizmi compiled a dvd set of live footage which was released in 2010. « hide
