In 1962, from the Ensley Highlands section of Birmingham, Alabama,
 Robert Alexander (rhythm guitar), Ned Bibb (song writer, vocalist and lead guitar),
and Bobby Marlin (drums) started playing together as a band while
 they were still in high school. The group started out as The Counts
and grew in numbers to include Henry Lovoy doing vocals and maracas
and Jimmy LaRussa on bass.The band later added Roy (Zac) Zachry on keyboard.
 After Ned Bibb left the band in 1966,Eddie Rice joined the group on guitar
 and played with the Distortions for about a year.
After Eddie left the band, Bo Fowler played guitar, followed by Joe Rudd.

 Steve Saylord on saxophone.Henry Lovoy took over on drums in 1972.
 Several other musicians, including Barry Beckett, and Eddie Hinton
