anyone know anything about this band “riggs” ? i have the heavy metal movie sound track and they’re some songs on there from a band called ‘riggs’.
they sound great, i’d like to know more about them, pick up some of their music, but i’m not a good web searcher, thats why i’m asking you to let me know what you find.
in the mean time, i’m working on a few peaces focused on the nine lives cats have and incorporating into my life…how many lives i have left…or you, depending on how you view them….there’s one up right now, the better one will be up sometime tomorrow.
