Izzys Thorn was orginally formed in early 2011 by Mike Racine, Chris Racine and Greg Albert. Mike and Greg worked together as medics on an ambulance when they discovered they had a special interest in common, playing rock and roll music. By chance Mikes son Chris was a new and up and coming lead guitarist. The band would practice at Mike and Chris house. One night after the three realized they may be onto something, Chris and Mike were at home trying to think of a good band name when all of a sudden Izzy ( Mike's wife at the time) said, "how bout calling it the thorn in my side." Mike and Chris looked at each other and both said "Izzy's Thorn" and the rest is history. After a short time they placed an ad for a lead singer and the ad was answered by George Finley, George fit the part of vocalist and when he greeted everyone for the first time with a hug they knew that this guy was down to earth and will fit right in with the Thorn family. "It was amazing how the four of us came together and formed the family known as Izzys Thorn." We are from the Houston, Texas and surrounding areas and we love to play rock music. Izzys Thorn plays amazing originals and great cover tunes. When a cover song is decided upon there is one stipulation that all the guys must agree to. They refuse to play a song just like the radio version. "Stick a thorn in it" is our motto. "We will not stop until we are the best that we can be." Keep on loving Rock N Roll and let Izzy's Thorn give you what you love.
A special thanks to Richard Johnson for being part of Izzy's Thorn for a short time. We had some great times brother and some awesome shows. We love you man!!!!!
