Notable // Keith said the group draws inspiration from the early '90s, when mainstream listeners latched onto no-holds-barred rock 'n' roll. Though Red Headed Temper's music may change, that feeling will probably persist, he said. An EP should be finished by the end of the year.
Quotable // "We're open to experimenting with anything and growing and developing," Keith said. "It's a young group, and it's people that want to play together."
