The Afghan Whigs are an American rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio, originally active from 1986 to 2001, who have since reformed. The group – with core members Greg Dulli (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rick McCollum (lead guitar), John Curley (bass), and Steve Earle on drums – rose up around the grunge movement, evolving from a garage punk band in the vein of the Replacements, Dinosaur Jr., and Mudhoney to incorporate more soul influences into their sound and image.
