ROCK: 50's Rock, ROCK: Acoustic
BadDogs consists of Rich Currier and Dave German. Rich plays acoustic / electric guitar, pedal steel guitar, and sings both lead and harmonies. Dave plays 12 string and six string acoustic guitar, dobro, 5-string banjo, and sings both lead and harmonies. BadDogs trademarks are beautifully matched harmonies accompanied by excellent and intricate finger-picking and flat-picking acoustic guitars. BadDogs just completed their first CD, which contains a mix of cover tunes and original compositions written by Dave and Rich. Dave has been a writer-member of ASCAP since 1967 and a writer-member of GEMA since 1980.
Rich got involved with music at an early age in the Los Angeles area. He started playing surf guitar in 1964, joined a rock and roll band shortly thereafter and played top 40's music throughout the rest of the decade.
After returning from a government sponsored vacation of sorts in Southeast Asia during the early 70's, Rich played lead guitar in a Christian country band. In that group he started playing pedal steel, which gave the group a distinctive country flair. After earning a business degree, Rich drifted away from the music for 15 years. He moved to Colorado in 1994 and the last half of the 90's began a reawakening for him. Rich now has a collection of 15 instruments and a basement full of supporting gear. He plays acoustic folk and early rock and roll. Rich has played blues guitar for a couple of local bands and played guitar and pedal steel at several of Colorado Springs' local venues. In addition to recording a CD with a couple of great folk and bluegrass musicians, Rich has recently managed to get together with Dave and they're rapidly perfecting their Everly Brothers harmonies.
Dave started playing guitar in 1956 at the age of ten. After playing in a multitude of school bands, Dave's first professional performance was in a Denver bar band along with Rusty Young (of Poco fame) in 1962. Dave played in several bands in and around Denver, often being asked to "sit in" when another guitar player was sick or couldn't make a gig. During Dave's Denver days he also played lead guitar for Sonny & Cher, Glen Campbell and Freddy Cannon on their Midwest tours in 1965. Dave joined the Army on a four year enlistment in 1966 and was out of the music scene until 1970. After moving to Europe (Germany) in 1972 Dave started playing the folk music scene until joining up with two German nationals to form the band Westwood in 1975. Westwood, playing Dave's songs, released three LPs in 1976, 1980, and 1982 with songs written by Dave. The 1980 LP, "Winner Takes All" made the German hit parade and resulted in a full touring calendar. After around a thousand live concerts in conjunction with radio and TV appearances, Westwood disbanded in 1984 and Dave returned to the States in 1986, moving to Colorado Springs, Colorado. In 1997 he agreed to do a reunion concert with his old band Westwood in Germany. This reunion concert turned into nine sold-out concerts over a three week period and Dave has been returning to Germany on an annual basis ever since to play with Westwood.
In 2002 Rich and Dave met at a local coffee house in Woodland Park, Colorado where Rich was hosting an open stage. After performing together at other open mikes in southern Colorado, they decided to form "BadDogs" and see where it would take them. The journey has just begun.
