About the Artist
Formed in Jacksonville, Florida in 1975; Molly Hatchet took their band name from a legendary prostitute who allegedly mutilated and decapitated her clients. Their self-titled debut album, recorded in 1978, quickly went platinum; the follow-up, Flirtin' with Disaster , was an even bigger success, ultimately selling well over two million copies. After a hiatus in the early 90s, they reunited during the second half of the decade as an active touring outfit, releasing a slew of studio and live albums, successfully recapturing the style of their earlier glory days. Today, still combining loud Hard Rock Boogie with Guitar Jam-oriented Southern Rock, Molly Hatchet has become for some the definitive Southern Rock band, an icon of Rock music.
