That article is indeed a good nostalgic read, I remember reading it in the past. It's also filled to the brim with lots of cringe-worthy snide remarks about nerds, lol. Ahh, the early 2000s... the era when nerds were still not yet glamorous and sexy  :lol:

What was the name of that shaggy dude who was briefly in the band? The one in the Dr. Mario video above?

i've known Jeff for over 20 years and actually forgot he was in the MBs

 

if you think he was shaggy then you'd laugh if you saw him now

I met Jeff at MAGFest 9 and X. He is a great dude and let me play his guitar during Search Snake set.

Sloppiest Miniboss ever was probably Fred, but I love every Miniboss lol

Fred was sloppy in an Omar from At The Drive-In kind of way tho, he was all over the place and energetic, I loved watching him play. The first time I saw them (PAX '07), John had just left the band and they hadn't moved Ben to second guitar yet, so Fred was back filling in, and as you can hear from the PAX '07 bootleg, they sounded pretty solid that night. I've also seen him play drums on Double Dragon a couple times and he tore it up. 

 

This is rapidly going from a "Minibosses Bootleg Thread" to a "Minibosses Nostalgia Thread" :P

I wonder if those dudes ever think about how their decision to form and stick with a video game cover band ended up like actually changing the lives of a lot of people...Even though this forum has moved beyond just being the "Minibosses Message Board", that's where it all comes from, and that's why the first couple generations of posters were here in the first place. I've become less a part of the VGM community and more a part of the chiptune community, but I also would've never known what the fuck a chiptune was if it weren't for this place, thus, all of my friendships, accomplishments and fun times as a musician, promoter and showrunner can directly be traced back to the existence of the Minibosses.

Speaking of Jeff, I remember when Minibosses played (Mag9? I think) and they introduced Jeff to us and we all chanted together "WE LOVE JEFF!"

Here's the article PHX New Times did back in the day. Not sure from when, I think this was the first piece they did though, just around time they'd won best of phx cover band or so I guess.

Did Jeff achieve maximum shag? Or is he a clean-cut goodboi now? I'm praying it is the former.
