The singer and songwriter for The Rev is Eric Meyers, and he’s had what could be described as a colourful life, which has also suggested that he was predestined to play the guitar. Not that he embraced this initially – he tinkered a little and then was drawn into sports, he surfed and free-dived and travelled the world for the perfect wave. He boxed to keep fit. One boxing accident saw him almost lose his sight, and sent him back to the guitar whilst he recovered. A dive almost became a drowning. He took the hint – learnt guitar, wrote songs, formed a band and can now present this Outlaw tale of dirty deeds and dangerous situations.
