BAD OUT THERE
Frank Carillo & the Bandoleros
Frank Carillo has been around since the early 70s, playing with Peter Frampton, The J. Giles Band, Cheap Trick, Van Halen, Carley Simon, Michael Bolton, Twiggy, Anouk, John Hammond and Golden Earing, jamming with Led Zeppelin and opening for the Bee Gees. Oddly his music sounds like a blend of Bob Dylan and Tom Waits' vocal style and Bruce Springsteen's early sense of rock and roll. Carillo plays electric and acoustic guitar and sings the heck out his self-penned songs. It is a surprise that with all of his brushes with fame and having major label albums, he will be a fresh new voice to most people. This guy can really sing and play and write a song and the Bandoleros rock like they have been together for years. A satisfying album in every way.
