You’d be sitting in front of the sofa for hours if we would have prepared a film chronicling the sweeping history of the band who has become a household name, Drowning Pool, originally formed in Dallas, Texas in 1996. The band who has never been out seeking a radio hit through the superficial realm of solely promoting sex, drugs and rock and roll have rounded up a gang of brothers that have evolved into one hell of a jaw-dropping and energetic metal band. The gang recently brought out 82 year old America’s Got Talent sensation, John Hetlinger, who performed the band’s smash hit, “Bodies”, live on stage at the first ever Chicago Open Air festival with Jasen Moreno as though he has rocked the mic for years. Wes sat down with the band’s current vocalist, Jasen Moreno, and bassist, Stevie Benton to discuss their ink, their latest album, ‘Hellelujah‘, and more.
