BulletBoys band members

hair story

BulletBoys were formed in 1986 in Los Angeles, California by former King Kobra members Marq Torien (also formerly of Ratt) on vocals, Mick Sweda on guitar, Lonnie Vencent on bass and Jimmy D’Anda on drums. The group were strongly influenced by AC/DC and Van Halen with Torien drawing comparisons to Van Halen singer David Lee Roth. After signing a deal with Warner Bros., the group released their debut album BulletBoys in 1988 with the album peaking at number 34 on the Billboard 200. The group released two singles, a cover of the classic O’Jays tune, “For the Love of Money” (which peaked at number 30 on the Mainstream Rock Chart and number 78 on the Billboard Hot 100), and “Smooth Up In Ya” (which peaked at number 23 on the Mainstream Rock Chart and number 71 on the Billboard Hot 100), with both receiving airplay on MTV. They released their second album, Freakshow, in 1991; however, the album only peaked at number 69 on the Billboard 200… (from Wikipedia)
