Boyd Littell led a life that was full of surprises. As the youngest of 4 children, the announcement of his impending arrival was a surprise to his siblings, who had varied reactions. As a toddler he surprised his family repeatedly in his highchair with his precocious drumming and amazingly accurate impersonation of The Incredible Hulk. During his early teen years Gee, so called by his family, began to surprise the community with his natural musical talents and his amazing passion for perfecting his gift. Then as a teen and young adult, he surprised friends, co-workers and musical colleagues with his tender compassion of others, his sincere gratitude for lifes joys and the fact that he never exhibited cruelty. To anyone. Ever. And then, he surprised us all by leaving suddenly and too soon.
No list can express the talent, humor, commitment and love Boyd Gee had for his friends and his music but here are the bands he was a member of, created, or got kicked out of in no particular order: ADDverse Effects, The Ills, Mama Sweet, Stereo Pimp, Scabby Itchens, Skinphonia, Pidgin, Thumper, Deluxe Vortex, Rat Bastard and Electric Ass, Conjunto Clave, The Method, The Projects, Blues Man/Blues Devil, Tao Chemical, Circus Midgets, Tritones, Tincture, Blue Light Special, and Lord High Octane & the Kam Shaft Kings.
