The co-frontmen for Professor and the Madman are Alfie Agnew (The Adolescents, D.I., local punk cover band The Critens) and Sean Elliott (D.I., Mind Over Four, The Critens). PTM’s studio lineup has Alfie and Sean backed by the rhythm section of Rat Scabies (ex-Damned) and Paul Gray (current bassist in the Damned, ex-Eddie & the Hot Rods, Johnny Thunders, UFO). Since Rat and Paul live across the pond, for live dates Alfie and Sean are backed by Frank Agnew (Social Distortion, 45 Grave, Adolescents, T.S.O.L, Legal Weapon) on bass, Mark Tolbert on guitar, and Nick Scalzo on drums.
