Chuck Ragan: 

“Two decades ago I was sleeping on a floor the night before we were to leave on what what would be the first of countless tours that would continue a life on the road. I grew up constantly on the move but this was different. We’d all spent the evening raging in excitement and packing up a mini van with gear and bags to live the only dream we knew at the time. Making music and hurling ourselves into the unknown. We took any food and filler that we had in the cupboards, a small amount of camping gear and the little money we had to our name. As soon as the 1987 Astro Minivan hit the road  it was name “The Black Lung.” The van always seemed like it was on its last leg and held together with spit and duct tape. Although that van was as much as of a train wreck as well all were., it was still beautiful in our fired up eyes and just as willing to go the extra mile just as long as we could afford the fuel.”
