Shark Island

Shark Island

Shark Island was one of the most popular club bands in Los Angeles during the 80`s metal explosion. They dubbed themselves the "the longest running successful rock show in L.A.", but they were never able to break wide open.
They began as the Sharks as early as 1979 when high school friends Richard Black (considered to be the man from whom Guns N` Roses` front man Axl Rose stole most of his stage moves!) and Spencer Sercombe joined forces. The lineup for the Sharks changed regularly, with vocalist Black and guitarist Sercombe being the only staples.
