The Godz


The Godz (1976-2019): a Hard Rock band from Columbus, Ohio, USA.


ric Moore (vocals/bass), Mark Chatfield (guitar), Bob Hill (guitar/keyboards) and Glen Cataline (drums) got together to create a down to earth and dirty biker friendly hard rock based on the Grand Funk Railroad template. Indeed, their debut album The Godz (1978), proved to be a gem in the rough that nudged its way into the US top 200. With Cataline taking over vocals, the follow-up Nothing Is Sacred (1979) was a relative failure and the group folded shortly after.

Moore and Chatfield reformed the band in 1985 recruiting Freddy Salem (ex-Outlaws; guitar) and Keith Valentine (drums) to release another ignored album, I'll Get You Rockin' (1985). A last-ditch effort in the form of a re-mix of the previous effort with the title of Mongolians (1987) came before folding again.

Another reformation would see the release of Last of the Outlaws (2012) and Last Rites (2014). This time the band would have to quit for good as Glen Cataline, nicknamed "Animal" and drummer on the first two albums, died on April 14, 2019, at age 67. Eric Moore died on May 17, 2019, after a long battle with bladder cancer also at age 67. Terry Evans, who was the drummer on the Last of the Outlaws, released in April 2012, died unexpectedly in May 2019 at the age of 55.
