hammer the rock ænÆ roll world with a Bender that makes Scott Weiland glow
with all the innocence of a Shirley Temple? Maybe itÆs the cityÆs low-key,
blue collar aesthetic, maybe itÆs the energizing dichotomy of their trendy
alternative East Side and party-like-a-rock star West Side, maybe itÆs just
the simple sum of the bandÆs musical parts, or maybe itÆs a bit of each that
makes Benderùfrontman Kent Boyce, guitarist Matt Scerpella, bassist Tim Cook
and drummer Steve Adamsùone of modern rockÆs biggest reasons to be optimistic
about the impending millennium.
