Some Words From Eli
Where did the name FASTER HORSES come from?
The story behind how The Faster Horses got their name is one of my favorite tales to tell. The boys and I had been having trouble deciding on what the band name should be for a few years up until this monumental event.
We had just finished up a show at a big college HonkyTonk in northern Iowa, I’ll never forget that show, it was the first time my Lead Guitar Player at the time or I had ever crowd Surfed. We rock the house that night. So naturally, after the show my old man had bought the band a round of shots to celebrate jobs well done.
As he held up his glass, he said:
“In the words of your late grandfather, Larry Elmo Alger, “cheers boys, here’s to FASTER HORSES!”…”
I immediately questioned “Did he really used to say that?!”. When Dad said “oh ya”, I exclaimed, a tad emotionally, “boys! that’s the band name… we are The Faster Horses”.
It was unanimous.
Long story short, these roots run deep.
