KOBRA has been together since May 2000, and in January 2001 they brought out there own album, called "Daddy's Home"! KOBRA is deeply influenced by Slash (and his Snakepit of course) and like to play, next to their own rockin' songs, covers from Slash's Snakepit (like "Ain't Life Grand" and "Been There Lately") and some old GNR-stuff (like "Mr. Brownstone" and "Sweet Child O' Mine ). Please visit KOBRA's site, and "rock with us through all the fuckin' shit"!
