David "DaVo" Wilkins has been an active member of the Des Moines Punk and Music scene since the mid 1980s. Growing up in Des Moines he was faced with two main states of mind, "Why?" and "It will never work." His answer to both has always been, "Why the fuck not." Always attracted to underground and sub-cultures as a teenager he was an active BMX Freestyler and Skateboarder and started his own trick team Flyin' N Stylin' at age 14 and went on to do a number of Demos throughout Iowa including two years at the Iowa State Fair.

He told them that he was a bass player though he had never played bass before.
Joey Jordison was born and raised in the Des Moines area. Often counted as one of the top ten best drummers in the world, he started playing when he was 5 years old and began his musical career playing in a number of metal bands that revolved around the Runway scene and filling in from time to time on Drums with his stepdad's Dixieland Jazz band the Maple Street Jazz Band.

Greg Welts is from Southern California and was part of the early 80s O.C. Punk scene playing drums in a number of bands including Mad Parade and Organized Crime. He was also a tattoo artist.
For a short time he lived in Des Moines in 1995 but didn't stay for long. It was DaVo's offer for a job working at the Axiom that brought him back to Des Moines and lead to him being the drummer for The Have Nots.
John Aagard joined The Have Nots when he was only 16 years of age as a replacement for Joey. When he was brought into the band a new drummer had also been auditioned who's first name was also John. To avoid confusion John became Little John and the Drummer became Big John or One Shoes John. The Drummer would only play one show thankfully and would discover he was not in the band when he found out that Joey was playing drums with us before Greg's return. However John would stay with the band from April 1996 until band broke up.
