This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

BIOGRAPHY:

Superb lead guitarist, I first saw him when he played in Spain with Joe Cocker in 1989, and was amazed by his solos. Later, it has not been easy to trace his career, but I´ve done my best.


BLUE OYSTER CULT


In March 1985, Tommy Zvoncheck and Phil Grande join Blue Oyster Cult, thus becoming a sextet.

But Phil Grande left the band very soon, after just a few weeks.

  1. thank you for this excellent work about Phil Grande and Joe Cocker band
    I'm a french musician, old fan of our regretted Joe, I saw this team during a concert in Toulouse by 1991 or 1992.
    I was crucified by this brilliant guitarist, the sound of its equipment and the incredible feeling in its interventions...
    Thanks to you to speak about him...

    1. Hi, JeanMi. Thanks for writing this. I absolutely agree about Phil Grande, he's awesome. I'll post a few photos of Phil Grande in the next days as I'm compiling to include more photos and scans of Joe Cocker, also with Phil.
