He was looking for the sort of situation we had to offer and as it turned out, we were looking for him!” Having spent time in such bands as the legendary Dio, metal heroes Armored Saint, the short lived Violet’s Demise and Odin, a band who had reached cult status by the end of the 1980’s without ever leaving Hollywood!
