Where Are They Now?

Kacy Ross

Here is a rare photo of Kacy circa '73 in his parents' basement working out new material that would one day become Rich Rags and Deloris Telescope songs.

Kacy Ross is still out there somwhere along with Fox Moulder's truth.

Andre Belloise

Andre has managed to keep himself extremely busy since the time he was in DT. Not only does he have his own company designing personal in-ear monitoring devices but he also has an award winning 80's tribute band called Men From Mars and hosts a free haunted house at his home in Clearwater. Check out Andre on the web.
