Zealot formed in an instant through a craigslist ad Joel replied to posted by RJ & Matt in search of a bassist who could also sing. Joel listened to their home recorded track, Bravo" and decided his audition would be to add a guitar track and send it back. Joel laid his guitar on their mp3 and sent it back.
Shortly thereafter the trio began rehearsing and writing and eventually played one show at the Springwater in Nashville, TN. before dissolving in the toxic egotism of a suburban man-child's narcissistic insistence on having it "HIS" way.
Well politics be damned, at least Joel was smart enough to record this shit as it happened. Sad but true, the thing fell apart as fast as it came together. Joel would later lament, "same ol' shit, different selfish asshole..."
