Bankston in cockpit-RGB


We figured it was about time to share another song from our reissue of Over There … and Over Here by the Red Rippers. “Firefight” recounts a combat story told to songwriter Ed Bankston by a Marine and fellow Vietnam veteran after a show–he also gave Ed a killer peach cobbler recipe. Ed’s tearing, jagged guitar on this track perfectly captures the sound of gut-wrenching fear.
