I guess I'm like 25-30% Irish and like 25-30% German instead of being 60% German. I need to go get a "Kiss me, I'm Irish" shirt or hat.

Hey! Get your own chat-up routine! :lol:

Although I'm a Mick my ancestry is actually Gallowglass, which I'm led to believe comes from Norse mercenaries via Scotland so that explains the red hair, short fuse and bank vault wallet... :P

75 % Scot Irish via the Sims, the MacIntyres and the Jacksons.
There's some old Dutch in there somewhere, and the rest is Cherokee.
My great-great-great grandad was full-blooded Cherokee and picked up the name Babb (from a wife we guess).

DeArque was a left over from the 80's. I didn't really like Steve Babb as a stage name, but DeArque sounded pretty stupid too! :lol: So I changed it back.

Why use the name DeArque as a band member but then again Steve Babb as an producer? Did you get more money this way or what?
The world is smaller than you think!

I haven't got a clue. But possibly, I made more money using the name Babb. I do even better when I use the name "Fred Schendel", and get that other guy to pose for pictures with me.

More news about the Belmont / Nashville concert...
Approximately 120 choral singers will peform alongside Glass Hammer at the November 5th Nashville concert. Belmont's University Singers and Women's Choir will combine for what may well be a rock and roll first, and will perform music from 2002's Lex Rex and the upcoming epic release "The Inconsolable Secret". Tickets are already on sale.
