Rodney Parker & Fifty Peso Reward Apologize. Again.

Ask three members of Denton country-rock outfit Rodney Parker and Fifty Peso Reward where the band name came from, and you'll get three humorous, and ultimately, unrevealing answers.

"Nowhere," say bass player Brooks Kendall. "From drunk 22 year-old idiots."

Multi-instrumentalist Danny Skinner adds, "The story is really not interesting unless you were there, and even then it's still not interesting."

Perhaps the band's lead-singer and namesake, Rodney Parker, sums it up best, "Secrets!"
