Cheese Blotto was born in 1956. He played bass towards the end of the Star Spangled Washboard Band. After they broke up, he suggested they play as a rock band, and so Blotto was born.

Besides Blotto, Cheese played bass for the 50s-style rock band "The Neanderthals", with whom he released two albums.

Cheese died in October, 1999.
