[ 2003 - Present ]
Michael "Spider" Cotterman
The Loved Ones are a rock n roll outfit based loosely out of Philadelphia. Born in late 2003 singer/guitarist Dave Hause and his fellow cohorts – DC based bassist Michael "Spider" Cotterman and drummer Mike Sneeringer – are deeply steeped in their hometown lineage having initially offered up their talents as players in Kid Dynamite, The Curse, Trial By Fire, and for a time Paint It Black; where Hause handled axeman duties before leaving to front The Loved Ones. So while the three-piece is definitely a departure from the members past endeavors, the punk sensibilities, and organic approach to playing still remain paramount. Owing as much to Bruce Springsteen as say Dillinger Four, the end result mixes killer riffs and raspy vocals to explosive ends. Expect big things, as heartfelt hometown sing-alongs simply don't get any better than this.
