The Afghan Whigs

The Afghan Whigs Biography

A soul-influenced alternative/indie rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio, the Afghan Whigs were formed in 1986 by vocalist/guitarist Greg Dulli, guitarist Rick McCollum, bassist John Curley and drummer Steve Earle (2).

After releasing 6 LPs, a number of singles and EPs and a couple of drummers (Paul Buchignani and Michael Horrigan), the group disbanded in February of 2001, temporarily reforming (with Horrigan as drummer) in 2006 to record two new tracks for a best-of compilation.

In December of 2011, the core group of Dulli, McCollum and Curley announced its reformation to play a number of 2012 concert and festival dates, augmented by touring members Cully Symington, David Rosser and Rick Nelson (3).
