Starting a band isn’t about who you are, it’s about who you know. If you’re lucky enough to have Guns N’ Roses guitarist Izzy Stradlin as a room mate, and happen to sing/play guitar, the odds of you getting a gig somewhere are rather high. Today’s selection, Adam Bomb (that’s the name Stradlin told him to use), was one of those lucky dudes.
At 16 this bozo was in a tribute band with Queensryche‘s Geoff Tate, tried out for KISS (but failed) at 18, then spent the rest of his career either doing solo stuff, or playing the role of “Captain Fill-In” for numerous bands from the 80’s.
Adam Bomb: I Want My Heavy Metal
Adam still tours Europe with his band, but who really cares? This dude is funny to watch on Youtube and that’s about it. The only way you’d catch me at one of his shows would be one of three ways:
1) He happened to be opening for a severely kick ass band.
2) You paid me double the ticket cost.
3) I was drunk off my ass and was told I was going to see W.A.S.P..
For all I know this dude can shred like no one’s business. Until I see footage of such a feat, my mind is set. Besides, any time I say the name “Adam Bomb“, my brain sends me this picture:
Now THAT‘s Adam Bomb!
