Zeus Rooster's roots can be traced back to the summer of 1977 in a room above a garage on the West side of Houston, Texas. The 3 childhood friends had dreamed of being in a band together as long as they could remember, and in the summer of 1977 Carl Peterson got an electric guitar. Soon the others followed suit with Ed Barkley getting a 6-string electric, and Chris Martinez getting a bass. They found a drummer who lived just around the corner, and soon they were practicing their first licks in the room above the garage dubbed- "the jam room". From the get-go the members of Zeus Rooster started writing original music. Their first composition was a blues-rock song titled "Back door boogie". Soon they had a multi-track cassette recorder and they began to record their compositions. From that day on they never looked back, and even though they all live in different cities now (some 35 years later), they still continue to write and record original music together via the miracle of the world-wide-web.
