Child Bite

Child Bite is an American rock/punk/metal band formed in 2005 in Detroit, Michigan. The band's core members are founding vocalist Shawn Knight and long-time bassist Sean Clancy.Child Bite's sound consists of atonal guitar melodies, distorted bass and organ, frequent rhythmic shifts, and frenzied, howling vocals. Earlier recorded material often included additional instruments such as saxophone and violin. Their lyrical content is abstract and metaphorical, often dealing with topics such as fear, paranoia, and despair. Their sound has been described as "enormous and predatory, from the baleful rhythm section to Shawn Knight's [frightening vocals]." They are self-described and acknowledged by authorities in the genre as having a "horrorshow/slasher-flick" flair, which descriptors apply to their records, their album art and their music videos. Their visual aesthetic is directed by their vocalist, Shawn Knight, who works professionally as a graphic artist.In the spring of 2013, Child Bite released a split 7" with David Yow of Jesus Lizard and Scratch Acid."Morbid Hits," a collection of Anal Cunt cover songs, was released exclusively as a 5" vinyl record in early 2014 (via Housecore Records). This release featured the band being fronted by Pantera/Down frontman Phil Anselmo.As of 2018, Child Bite has toured the U.S. with such acts as Down, Voivod, Negative Approach, Superjoint, Poison Idea, Unsane and more.

Ted Gregory

Theodore Anthony Gregory (born February 11, 1965) is a former professional American football defensive tackle who played one season for the New Orleans Saints in the National Football League. Gregory was drafted by the Denver Broncos following a sterling collegiate career at Syracuse. Gregory listed his height as 6'1". However, a shocked Dan Reeves, who is also listed as 6'1" commented, "I'm taller than he is!" upon meeting Gregory after the draft. By Reeves' estimate, Gregory was closer to 5'9".Gregory had injured his knee in his last collegiate game, and the knee gave out during training camp. Following scathing criticism from the press for wasting a pick on damaged goods, the Broncos traded him to the Saints for Shawn Knight before the season. He is now regarded as one of the biggest draft busts in Broncos' history. After the Gregory incident the Broncos began meeting with potential draft picks prior to the draft, a practice they had not previously engaged in.Gregory blew out his knee in this third game with the Saints, and never played in the NFL again. After a series of failed business ventures drained his life savings, he took a job as a construction worker, only to have that end due to a ruptured disc in his back that temporarily rendered him a parapalegic. Gregory placed 8th in Deadspin's "The 100 Worst NFL Players of All Time".
