The Lost Dogs
is a country music supergroup
that began in 1991
as a one-time collaboration between four very different vocalists and songwriters from four different bands. Terry Scott Taylor
, the Swirling Eddies
), Gene Eugene
), Derri Daugherty
), and Michael Roe
,) have over the last decade released five eclectic albums of traditional American music (country, folk, blues, rock) with a decidedly modern feel. The Lost Dogs' concert performances are filled with between-song jokes and one liners between the band members (usually poking fun at each other).
Each Lost Dogs album includes at least one or two cover songs. Songs covered by the Lost Dogs include Bob Dylan's "Lord, Protect My Child", Leonard Cohen's "If It Be Your Will", The Beatles' "I'm A Loser" and Steven Foster's "Hard Times, Come Again No More".
In 1999, shortly after release of their Gift Horse album, Gene Eugene passed away in his sleep at The Green Room, his recording studio in Huntington Beach, California.
Although the loss of Eugene is noticeable, the remaining three Lost Dogs members continue to tour and record new albums.
