The most dangerous band to ever come from Texas. Made up of 4 completely insane drug addicts; Scott Wood, Donnie Hart, Damon Duperre and Lance Williams, they were high quality musicians despite the fact that they did enough drug's to sink a batleship and together they created a sound and energy and that is rarely seen and heard in the music business.
Despite the drug and alcohol use and insanity Boss Tweed was the most professional Texas Metal band of the era and it was not uncommon to see members of band's such as Pantera, Rigor Mortis, Drowning Pool and many others at Boss Tweed gigs. They set the standard by which all Texas metal bands would be judged for decades to come.
Boss Tweed was formed in 1979 and was the first band in Texas to play heavy metal in clubs, concert halls, private parties and anywhere else that would book them. They were known for extreme stage antics including eating wine glasses, running up walls and smashing beer bottles. Legend has it that their rehearsal room in Benbrook Texas was 8 inches deep in broken glass and they were big time tweekers. Especially Damon who has forgotten more about tweeking than any of us will ever know about it.
The groupies claim that swallowing his penis pudding would tweek them out for two days. His spooge was the best dope in town according to them.
It was not uncommon for a Boss Tweed show to begin with 6 men dressed as the Reaper bringing a coffin onto the stage which members of the band would crawl out of. One of more members of the band spilled blood (real blood) on the stage at every gig and it was not staged it just happened. They were banned from every single storage facility in the DFW metroplex for starting fires, knocking walls down, ripping sinks off of walls, smashing toilets and playing at ear-splitting volume. Many bands cover Boss Tweed songs to this day.
