Molly Hatchet

Named after a legendary Southern prostitute who allegedly beheaded and mutilated her clients, Jacksonville's Molly Hatchet meld loud hard rock boogie with guitar jam-oriented Southern rock. Formed in 1975, the group's original lineup featured three guitarists -- Dave Hlubek, Steve Holland, and Duane Roland -- plus vocalist Danny Joe Brown, bassist Banner Thomas, and drummer Bruce Crump. They recorded a self-titled debut album in 1978, which quickly went platinum; the follow-up, Flirtin' with Disaster, was even more successful, selling over two million copies. Brown left the group in 1980 after the constant touring became too tiresome; he was replaced by Jimmy Farrar for Beatin' the Odds, but Farrar's voice was less immediately identifiable, and Molly Hatchet's commercial appeal began a slow decline. The band experimented with horns on Take No Prisoners, but Farrar left for a solo career soon afterwards. Brown rejoined the band in 1982, but the ensuing album, No Guts...No Glory, flopped, and guitarist Hlubek insisted on revamping Molly Hatchet's sound. After The Deed Is Done, a straightforward pop/rock album, the group took some time off in 1985 while its Double Trouble Live album, a collection of some of its best-known songs, was released. Molly Hatchet returned in 1989 without Hlubek for an album of straight, polished AOR, Lightning Strikes Twice. Not even the group's fan base bought the record, and Molly Hatchet disbanded shortly afterward. They reunited in the mid-'90s as an active touring outfit, releasing Devil's Canyon, their first record since Lightning Strikes Twice, in 1996. Continuing to recapture the style of their glory days, Silent Reign of Heroes followed in 1998, and Kingdom of XII appeared in early 2001. A slew of live recordings appeared during the next few years, and the band's studio follow-up, Warriors of the Rainbow Bridge, was released in 2005. Their 13th album, Justice, appeared in 2010. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

Saw them at the wreck bar in Daytona beach back in 78.
My very first concert was Molly Hatchet and April Wine. LOVED IT!

Like another fan, I had an 8 track of Flirting w Disaster. Brown's voice is southern rock to me.
I had a poster on my wall from an outdoor concert in a stadium. It just looked like the south. I saw all the southern looking fans with beers in hand. Quite a cool image for a New York kid to young to go to concerts
Saw them in Austin at the old Metal collisium with Blackfoot !!!
Needless to say one Hell of a concert... Round 82 ?
mviking2
Saw them in San Fran 1980 with Headeast and the Outlaws. They should have been the headliners. Dreams I'll Never See (long version) is right there with Freebird. Rock on....
Hey bottleman. ..it's a Allman Brothers Tune dude....Not Molly Hatchet
Most underrated southern rock bands ever... These cats can match Skynyrd lick for lick any day...
Real ole school. Jammin.
Love southern rock
These guys were great in concert. Tight and blazing guitars! Kick in the a**. Miss them.
Lived in St. Mary's Vs used to skip school and slip across the bay to see them play@ Fernindina Beach
What a fucken criminal you are. No less ill earned , every bit. You must very proud of your your necessity in needing to ignore that fact. Steal away big boys. Earn it not, but steal away. Proud of your ill earned reality.
What can I say... Molly Hatchet frickin' huge time rocks and Bounty Hunter will always be one of my favorites. This band goes well served with beer and some good friends<><

Bought the first album on 8 track and wore it the hell out! have been rocking the Hatchet ever since! Good things become classics not lost!
Just good ole southern fried rock! this is back when times were not so mtought and you could understand the words to songs
blues/rock
james.caslin
Another SKYNARD clone!!! Paying homage to the original southern rock band or The best F*%^'n band ever!!!
It's hard to beat the Album Art of Hatchet, It's a unique combo of Medieval, He-Man, and the depths of Hell.

I walked into a club called the Open Door ( a real dump) I believe it was 78 Danny Joe Brown was singing, Gregg Alman came in along with several guys from Skynard and Outlaws. It was Dannys birthday and just a big party. After every song he took a Qualude and huge swigs of Wild Turkey 101. He finally fell off the little stage. Ile

This is not songs, this is SOUTHERN ANTHEMS !!!!!!!!
If I could give Flirtin' with disaster 2 thumbs up , I would!!
rbsivley
Molly Hatchet is what Southern Rock is meant to be.
this is one of the songs/soundt r a c k s from the dukes of Hazzard movie
Southern Grunge Rock. Best -heard loud ..Take; Skynard, 38 Special, with ZZ Top along with Bad Company, shake it up with some Govt Mule and everyone will agree that Whisky Rock n Roll is best served loud and proud. Watch out for them Gators!
Their album artwork was better than their music
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works
this is my favorite hatchet song keep rockin
sat through a bomb threat in S.C. to see them
RIP Danny Joe Brown
I LOVE MOLLY HATCHET! THEY STILL ROCK TODAY.
meadowshire
Love the first two Molly Hatchett albums. Saw them in '79 in Dayton, OH on their first headlining tour. Eddie Money opened up (strange combination) . Hatchett performed a Skynyrd tribute = Gimme' Three Steps. Ahh, the Southern Rock of the '70's was great stuff.
Keep Up The Great Work Molly Hatchet !.
Molly Hatchet Still Rock They're Still Great !.
Flirtin' with disaster their most classic album.
crat711
I got high with them at the tack room in buffalo ny when 97 rock came back on the air! It cost .97 cents for tickets! My friend bob did the light show!! IT WAS F___AWESOME! It was in the 90's
good band, with some great jams, but to call them the best southern rock has to offer is ridiculous. Their first two albums were great, and after that, not so much. Don't know if they even crack my top 5. Skynyrd, Allman Bros, ZZ, Outlaws, CDB, MTB, THEN maybe MH. Just my opinion, of course.
Yes Phil McCormick did play with them for a while, I seen em in Daytona 91 for bike week. They kicked A** -- Moon Spotslvania, VA-Veterans M.C.
Didn't molly hatchet. Have Phil McCormick. From the Road Ducks, singing for them fir a while. Oris he still with them
molly hatchet rocks then and now still their brand of music is unlike anyone else . i love lynyrd skynyrd but hatchet just had that something special that only comes around once in a blue moon !! thanks for the music and keep on rocking 4 ever !!!!
Saw them live outsde in Indy at the Peppermint twist with Foghat &Pat Travers. still have the t shirt tom it
well i don't see anything about Mr. Riff West on the BIO .. he is one of the original members
I USE TO GO SEE MOLLY HATCHET AT PLAYGROUND SOUTH IN JACKSONVILLE IN 1983. THAT WAS THE BEST PLACE TO HEAR GOOD SOUTHERN BANDS. I MISS GOING TO SEE THEM......AT LEAST IGOT MY KIDS TOLISTEN TO THEM....
Simply the best southern rock has to offer.

Saw Molly Hatchet for the first time in about 1989 in St. Paul, MN at a summer outdoor festival. Saw them up close and they put on an amazing show. I agree that they were pretty underrated players, that triple headed guitar attacked laid down some amazing stuff, and Danny Joe is what southern rock singing sounds like! Too bad health issues took Danny and Duane at such you ages. God Bless.
Had the honor of opening for them in 08 in Laconia N.H. with Dave Hlubeck back in the band and awesome lead singer Phil mckormick. Sounds just like Danny.
moondancer.r e c o r d i n g
Saw them in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1984 for the No Guts, No Glory album concert... Awesome! So sad for Danny, the true Voice of the South!

i 'll never forget my 11th grade when they came to my high school for a autograph session farrar was the singer then rather have browns signature
