Bonus Trivia


Prior to forming the Afghan Whigs, Dulli was in a Cincinnati-area band called the Black Republicans.


McCollum formed a solo project, Moon Maan, in 2004, while Earle was a member of Moonbow and led the group Earle Grey.


With former Screaming Trees singer Mark Lanegan, Dulli performs as The Gutter Twins.


Cited as an influence by bands like My Chemical Romance, The National, Jimmy Eat World and The Hold Steady.


As part of their contract with Elektra, the band was granted a clause that would provide funds for a feature film to be written by Dulli.


While on tour with the band, Dulli was attacked after a performance in Austin, Texas and suffered a head injury that left him comatose and required two months of recovery.


The band was known for covering songs by other artists, including the Rolling Stones, Prince, Neil Young and the Fugees. They released an entire EP of covers, Uptown Avondale, in 1992, which contained covers of songs by Freda Payne, Al Green and the Supremes.
