fIREHOSE was an alternative rock band consisting of Mike Watt (bass, vocals), Ed Crawford (guitar, vocals), and George Hurley (drums).
fIREHOSE was formed in 1986 after the death of D. Boon brought an end to The Minutemen. Watt and Hurley teamed up with the then 22-year-old Crawford, a guitarist and Minutemen fanatic. Crawford was from Ohio, and started the band when he found Watt’s phone number in the phone book and called him, saying he wanted to play with Mike and George in California.
