Angel (Metal) Biography
...ANGEL was formed in 1975 by Punky Meadows (Guitar), Frank DiMino (Vocals), Gregg Giuffria (Keyboards), Mickie Jones (Bass), and Barry Brandt (Drums). After their third album, Mickie Jones was replaced with Felix Robinson. Punky Meadows and Mickie Jones had previously recorded an album with the band BUX in the early 1970's, (Which also included an early version of "White Lightning"). This band also featured Ralph Morman who later worked with the JOE PERRY PROJECT. However the BUX album was not released until 1976, after ANGEL had started to get big. The final studio album "Sinful", was originally going to be entitled "Bad Publicity", and some copies left the factory with that title on the label of the record itself. An even smaller number made it out with the "Bad Publicity" outer record jacket. These of course are now the sought after versions of the record amongst collectors. Over the years, the band toured the world with such '70s hard rock legends as: HUMBLE PIE, FRANK MARINO & MAHOGANY RUSH, and LEGS DIAMOND. Surprisingly though (considering they shared the same label:CASABLANCA), they never toured with Kiss. After ANGEL folded in 1981, Gregg Giuffria went on to form the band GIUFFRIA, which had 2 albums out in the mid 1980's. Once GIUFFRIA disbanded in 1987, Gregg formed HOUSE OF LORDS, which continued on until 1993. But...the saga continues! ANGEL has gone back into the studio (late summer 1998) to record a new CD entitled: "IN THE BEGINNING", which should be out in late summer 1999!

Angel is AWESOME | Reviewer: Alan Croisant | 9/28/07
"Tower" was the 1st song I ever heard from Angel back in 1975. I seen them twice in concert in Kansas City. WHAT an AWESOME band. In the early 90's I found EVERYTHING they made on CD at Best Buy and bought em all. Then their new release in 1999. I now have over 50 Angel songs on my iPod and absolutely LOVE all of them. I can only hope they decide to make another one soon. Too bad they broke up before MTV cause they could have definitly become a MEGA band. There music means more to me than any thing else i've ever heard. Long Time is my all time favorite song. I have a myspace page deticated to Angel at myspace.com/moparcarparts Stop by if you wanna hear an Angel tune.
Thank You Angel, for every memory you bring me.
