BulletBoys

BulletBoys

BulletBoys are a glam metal band that was formed by vocalist Marq Torien, guitarist Mick Sweda, and bassist Lonnie Vencent in the late 1980s after they left King Kobra. It also featured new young rock drummer Jimmy D`Anda. The band’s first two albums (Bullet Boys and Freakshow) were well received by critics and fans alike. Some critics compared the band to David Lee Roth-era Van Halen, as Torien`s vocal and performing similarities were noted as being derivative. That argument was furthered by the fact that Ted Templeman produced both the Roth-era Van Halen albums and the BulletBoys.
