    Shawn said: I played in a great band called, Rock Kills Kid. We started to have some serious success and went into to make our second record with Michael Beinhorn. He is an amazing and legendary producer. As that band fell apart. Michael asked me to be a part of another record he was about to do. It was Hole. He did their “Celebrity Skin” record as well. Six years later, here I am. I love Michael and owe a lot to him. He is a special person and still a very close friend. Interview with Bassist Shawn Dailey of Hole and Blood Moon Therapy February 14, 2013

    The band is indeed no more. According to bassist Shawn Dailey's wiki page: "RKK entered the studio in 2007 to record the follow up album with super producer, Michael Beinhorn( Red Hot Chili Peppers, Hole, Soundgarden). Beinhorn brought in Jack Irons( Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, The Wallflowers) to track drums. The band also hired Fisherspooner guitarist, Sam Kearney to round out the line-up. After trouble in the studio, line-up changes and label issues. The group attempted to finish the record with producer, Jeff Saltzman( The Killers, Fisherspooner) to no avail. The band was done. The record was never released."

    Shame they never did anything after the first album. I got the impression from their myspace page back in the day that they had worked on a 2nd album but the label didnt like it.

    Love these guys and all, but shouldn't bands / artists use 'cover' in the title of their songs — seems a little like taking credit for the original.

    Great band. I heard Paralyzed a looong time ago, and never found out who sang it until now. I always thought it was Finger Eleven.
