In the early 1970s a new form of music was emerging in the South. A mixture of blues, country, gospel and the British invasion of rock and roll that later gave birth to the genre “Southern Rock.” The music was filled with style and emotion and with bands in the forefront such as the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd and a band from Jacksonville, Florida called Molly Hatchet. Their self-titled debut album was released on Epic records in 1978 and reached multi-platinum status as the band established their reputation of working hard, playing tough and living fast through intense touring with such bands as Aerosmith, Bob Seger, The Rolling Stones and many more.
In 1979, “Flirtin’ With Disaster” was released and history was in the making. The band continued touring on the road with an average of 250 live shows per year and like the first album it also achieved multi-platinum status. The group’s work earned them both critical praise and commerical success, the album hitting the #19 slot on the Billboard top 200 chart.
Molly Hatchet’s classic hits such as “Flirtin’ with Disaster, “Devil’s Canyon,” “Gator Country,” “Whiskey Man,” and “Dreams I’ll Never See.” showcase their strong guitar work with a pounding boogie beat. After 40 years, Molly Hatchet is still workin’ hard, playin’ tough, livin’ fast, and still Flirtin’ with Disaster!!!
