An evening with MICHAEL MONROE @ the Legendary Paradise Lounge!
Legendary rocker Michael Monroe has long been at the forefront of breaking music barriers. This spring he returns with a highly anticipated new group that was announced today (Monday, January 25) at a press conference hosted by pro skater, video director and MTV personality Bam Margera at Swing House Rehearsal & Recording Studios in Hollywood, CA. News about an upcoming album and U.S. tour dates, plus details about the Michael Monroe Mobile Backstage application for mobile devices — the personal hotline between the fans and Monroe's band anywhere in the world at any given time — was unveiled as well.
Michael Monroe's band features bassist Sami Yaffa who has played with a remarkable variety of bands including HANOI ROCKS, NEW YORK DOLLS and JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS, and guitarist Ginger who has dazzled audiences over the world with his band THE WILDHEARTS. Also on guitar is Todd Youth, the master fretman who has played with many top-tier hard rock ensembles, including DANZIG, MOTÃ–RHEAD, GLEN CAMPBELL, SAMHAIN, D GENERATION and most recently CHELSEA SMILES. Rounding out the band is drummer Jimmy Clark, whose resume includes providing rhythm for the likes of Deborah Harry (who would later introduce him to Michael Monroe), JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS, GLEN BURTNICK, RICK DERRINGER, WYNONNA, BLACKHAWK and THE VAN ZANT BROTHERS. Jimmy also played in Michael's band DEMOLITION 23 which also included Sami Yaffa.
