“Hot Rod Walt” aka Walt Richards, was born in 1966. Lived the first half of his life in the very rural town of Beemerville New Jersey. Moved to North Port Florida in 1989. In 2006,moved to the Atlanta area where the music scene is huge and the southern hospitality is overwhelming. Not only does he play guitar and sing in thePsycho-DeVilles, but works on custom cars and motorcycles. Does hand pinstriping and really just about anything you can imagine on a car or bike. He has a pretty cool car collection that includes a couple 51 mercs and a couple 32 Fords. And a 34 coupe, the famed “Yellow Jacket”….. And….he has a very cool wife named Sharlene.
When not touring the SE with the Lefty Williams Band or Revival an Allman Brothers Experience he host a Monday night jam at Bella’s Pizzeria in Smyrna and it attracts players from every genre. He keeps it interesting with a different house band weekly and throws in some Theme nights like Iron Maiden ,The Who & The Beatles.
Pistol Town is an original PowerPop Punk Band based in Atlanta that tours the US and Canada!
I became a fan listening to their Originals off their CD “Days Away” but seeing them live is a whole another experience! They are”Pure Energy” and with 3 vocalist it adds a wide range of diversity to the set list. They cover everything from Johnny Cash to George Micheal, Weezer and Sublime but with their own Pistol Town style.
