Does anyone remember when Congressman Bob Barr and Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott were rightly condemned for speaking in front of the Conservative Citizen's Council, a racist organization that believes in white supremacy?

Rock is full of emotion and Vertical Horizon's music is no exception. Keith Kane and Matt Scannell met at a Georgetown University party in 1991 where Kane was playing an acoustic guitar. Kane asked Scannell to play and later asked him to join him at his weekly gigs. Thus, Vertical Horizon was born.
