USS Rock N Roll was formed in the year of our lord 2007. The members of this crack team were brought together under the direct order of the Commander in Chief of the United States of America. The mission was this: to set sail aboard a comedy vessel that would bring funny to the sad, indigenous peoples of the world. The budget would be small as all defense monies were already being driven into the battle over foreign oil. So the crack team’s only tools would be imagination, “yes”, and some kick-butt jokes.
These men and women journey the world over bringing laughs, chortles, and guffaws to anyone – period.
James Kirkland (aka The James )
Was born on a Christmas day when the New York Times said God is dead and the war has begun.
Yaba dabo lati dooo la weeee!
He laughs to keep himself from fits of weeping. Thinks often about the pain of living in this third world from the sun. James wishes to thank the children, father and god ghost living in side of him for all the good times.
WU TANG FOREVER.

Tony Lewellen (aka The Trapper)
Tony was born in the wilderness and will die in the wilderness. In the meantime, he lives in Los Angeles.
Dave Taylor (aka The Brary)
Dave hails from a remote desert planet where he lived with his aunt and uncle. As a boy, he wowed the townspeople by winning every single pod race. Once he reached high school age, his family sent him off to a well-to-do boarding school. When a group of terrorists seized the school, Dave led a band of clever misfit students to play pranks on the terrorists. He became the hero. After college, he lived in South America, where he pioneered a brand of ultra-masculine New Journalism. He experienced a setback when he accidentally shot his wife. She survived and they remained married. Dave eventually became a New York City cop. While in NYC, his wife got hired by an Asian conglomerate based in Los Angeles. When visiting her during Christmas, Dave got tangled up with terrorists once again. And once again, he showed his bravery. Eventually, he too moved to LA where he now does comedy.
