Flashback to your days as an 18-year-old in West Virginia. Did you idolize Paul McCartney as your friends raved over Green Day? Did you play sold-out clubs and hopp'n festivals around the state? Were you "Runnin' on Good Times"? If you were, you have a good deal in common with the Hattons, a pair of brothers who founded the Huntington rock band Of the Dell.

We sat down with Of the Dell's frontman Corey Hatton to talk about his band, his dog, his state and why he keep's getting banned from, well, everything.

We sat down with the alternative pop band's frontman to talk about Guster's newest record, their holiday music plans and their January 2016 return to the Mountain State.
