BULLETBOYS - www.facebook.com/TheBulletBoys FROM OUT OF THE SKIES TOUR 2 PLATINUM RECORDING ARTISTS TEAM UP FOR FULL TOUR. BULLETBOYS IN SUPPORT OF THEir NEW ALBUM ON FRONTIERS: FROM OUT OF THE SKIES
The BulletBoys began as a collection of talented musicians from other bands. Coming from the ranks of King Kobra and Ratt, the Bul-letBoys were able to quickly capture the attention of music fans around the world. Frontman Marq Torien emerged as one of the most underrated vocalists of the era. Guitarist Mick Sweda, Lonnie Vincent and drummer Jimmy D'Anda formed the core of the BulletBoys. Te self-titled debut BulletBoys, launched in 1988, was destined to be an instant success. Single "Hard as a Rock" became a fan favorite and was a hard-driving track. Te thumping rock was continued with "Kissin' Kitty" and "F#9". Escaping the trends of most bands of the era, the Bullet-Boys did not include a power ballad on their album. Instead, BulletBoys kept the Rock and Blues coming with hit single "Smooth Up in Ya". Cover of the old Blues song "For the Love of Money" was another hit. Te Bullet-Boys established themselves as the leaders of Party Rock. Lead singer Marq Torien quickly drew comparisons to David Lee Roth. Not only did they share similar vocal styles, but Marq Torien also brought the crazy energy and showmanship of Diamond Dave to live au-diences every night. With the success of BulletBoys, the band secured a coveted touring spot opening for Bon Jovi. Other tours paired the Bul-letBoys with Ozzy Osbourne and eventually led to huge headlining tours. Te hits and tour led to BulletBoys going platinum.
