The General Maynyrd Band
General Maynyrd Band started when Dan Ingberman (guitar) had accumulated a bunch of songs that just didn’t fit with his band Crooked Flower. With his bandmates Daniel Erik (bass) and Pat Shields (drums and percussion) suggested that we put together a side project with Drew Southern (guitar) and Will Kyriazis (piano and keyboards), who in addition to playing on various Crooked Flower albums, was in another band called Hibbity Dibbity with Tom Relling (slide guitar), another old friend who had played with everyone.
Everyone acquired a nickname during the rehearsals.
Dan was “Professor,” because he really is a professor, and also due to his love of music theory.
Daniel was “Shep” – due to his business acumen, he was named after Shep Gordon.
Pat was “Thumper” because his pounding drums are the heartbeat of the band.
Drew was “Coach” because he was a quarterback/wide receiver and explained everything in terms of football.
Dave was "Slayer" for the obvious reason....
Tom was “T-bone” because, well, just because.
For years we had been calling Will “Maynyrd” due to his deep knowledge of music.
In this project, however, Will was “General” because – although we all contributed – he was the “musical director.”
So now you know the secret behind the name “General Maynyrd Band.”
Much love, GMB.
