In an unfortunate series of events ZU, Tad and Derrick meet while attending Super Friends training camp back in 1997. The three had heard that the Super Friends were looking for some new Super Heros to add to the Legion of Honor. ZU thought he might finally be able to put his ability to shoot lasers from his eyes to good use. In an horrible training accident ZU inadvertently blew up Wonder Woman's invisible plane and he was sent packing. Derrick had performance anxiety and in pressure situations couldn't use power to telekinetically move things without smashing them into a million pieces. Tad let his power of shooting fire from his hands get out of control and started lighting everything on fire including Aqua man.
They were a sorry lot that had nothing but failing Super Hero Training Camp in common. They decided if they couldn't use their powers for good they would vow never to use them at all. Instead they formed Four Star Mary and the rest is music history.
It is rumored that every once in a while they sneak off into the desert to see if they still have their powers. Word has it that yes, they still do.....
OK Here's our real bio
Four Star Mary is an independent rock band based in Southern California comprised of musicians who bring a strong dose of diverse musical backgrounds to their catalogue of songs. Unlike many other bands, Four Star Mary is a collaborative musical effort, writing original songs described as "vociferous radio friendly Americana", "urgent melodic anthems" and "stirring and intense." After hearing Four Star Mary tunes, you start to see why they have been successful at selling their music worldwide.
The band has had splashing praises about their CDs "Thrown to the Wolves" and "Welcome Home" in magazines such as LA Weekly, Q Magazine, Classic Rock, and Metal Hammer, to name a few.
Four Star Mary has also made inroads to television with their music featured on shows such as Fox's "Party of Five," MTV's "The Real World" and "Road Rules", and ABC's Miracles. The band got a break out into the world music market when it supplied the cult TV show, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and its' fictional band, "Dingoes Ate My Baby" with 11 tracks. The band has most recently been featured on the hit show "Charmed" in October and November of 2005. Their television exposure lead to live appearances in many cities in England, Scotland and Germany after demands by European fans.
Fans they have... A great success of Four Star Mary is their devoted fans who buy their music from online stores (including www.fourstarmary.com) and downloading mp3 and iTunes. Reviews from their fans... "I bought the CD Thrown to the Wolves, and EVERY song is great", "It's incredibly hard to choose the best track", if only all the 'popular' music was this good!", "These guys rule! Their music is a mix between rock and alternative. It is possible that this is the best album I've ever listened to!", and many more. It's mostly "five" stars for this rock band.
Four Star Mary continues to record new music and perform live shows primarily self-supported. That says a lot in the aggressive world of music.
