The Death of an Opera Singer
(21 Reasons’ Story)
In Tulsa’s eclectic music scene Scott Brown, a classically trained singer, meets a funk rock drummer, Marc Hudson. Marc quickly lures Scott away from his classical background into the tumultuous world of rock and roll. Together they form a band called the Generics and tour through out Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas and Missouri. As time rolls on, the would be opera singer and drummer become restless with the band and the scene and relocate to Kansas City in search of a new musical challenge. They meet a fellow Tulsa native, Stan Hampton, a prolific bass player familiar with the Kansas City music scene and their brand of music. The trio then adds Steve Strong on electric and acoustic guitars and begins writing new material and performing as 21 Reasons in 2001. In late 2002 they complete their line-up by adding an explosive second guitarist Tony Trevino.
