Wells Kelly

Co-founder, singer/songwriter, drummer without equal, great keyboardist, with a minor in bass and guitar. Wells' untimely death in 1984 not only left a hole in the heart of Orleans, but was felt throughout the worldwide musical community. His drumming style was unique, fiery (like his personality) and much talked about and emulated by drummers around the world (including Peter O'Brien and Charlie Morgan). His loose cannon approach to life kept his bandmates on their toes at all times, expecting the unexpected. Alas, it also ended his life. May he rest in peace.
