Lead Guitarist and band founder, Gary “Dee Dee” James of St. Louis, MO began his professional career with a group of child hood friends including Edgar Hinton (bass guitarist with the Muggs) that ultimately landed a deal with Capital Records. The group had Top 40 Hits under the name Da’Krash and Kool Skool and was produced by legendary songwriter, Jesse Johnson, of “The Time”. After the group split, Dee Dee took his guitar chops on the road including tours with Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Bootsy Collins, George Clinton, Color Me Bad and Paula Abdul. Years of combined experience on stage both touring and with St. Louis’ popular cover bands inspired the creation of the Dirty Muggs.
