The Barstool Prophets were a rock band formed in Cornwall, Ontario in 1989 that was active throughout the 1990s. The members were bassist Glenn Forrester, singer/songwriter Graham Greer, guitarist Al Morier, and drummer Bobby Tamas. Originally known as the Wallflowers, the band changed its name in time to release its first independent album, Deflowered, in 1993. The singles “Paranoia”, “Last of the Big Game Hunters” and “Friend of Mine” were all Canadian rock radio hits in the mid-late 1990s. The band broke up in October 1999, but have reunited over the years for a few shows.
