The Loaded 44rz started with Loren Cooper writing three original tantalizing old school rockin’ country rhythm style songs, "Just Can't Settle Down", "Fuck The Law", and "Baby's Doin' Me Wrong". August of 1999, Loren started looking for a musical partner. He contacted life long friend and habitual guitarist, Troy Dering. Both had the same musical influences and both had played in various local punk, metal and pop bands throughout the late '80's and '90's in their hometown of Lake Charles, Louisiana.
