The Deadlights

When a Stephen King novel influences a band's name, one knows they must be hard and heavy. Such is the case with the Southern California quartet The Deadlights. Their name signifies the name of the lights at the end of the tunnel after a near-death experience. The band was created by vocalist Duke and drummer Jim Falcone. The duo added Jerry Montano on bass guitar and Billy Roan on lead guitar to round out the group.
