One of the best hard rock bands ever. Nobody quite knew what to think of longhaired, tattooed bikers singing such soulful, yet ballsy, rock music. While their image may have been at odds with their music, it definitely suited the live show.
Formed in Los Angeles, California by Ron Young (the vocalist whose back is completely covered by a jungle scene tattoo), Apache (guitar), Louren Molinare (guitar), Fidel Paniagua (bass) and Tom Morris (drums).

PISTOL KIXX are a frantic fusion of sleaze, blues, punk and classic rock!. Their sound brings together influences from old skool punk through 80’s glam and sleaze and even blues and classic rock. They combine the no nonsense rock n roll approach of punk and garage rock with the fire and the flash of the 80’s sleaze and hair bands they grew up loving. The Pistol Kixx idea was formed in March 2006 in the whisky and drug addled mind of singer Carli Hart. The band went through a few line-ups with Carli and Sober Dave on bass and then rhythm guitar being the only constant members.
Crazy Lixx is a Swedish hard rock band formed in 2002 in Malmö, Sweden. The core line-up up until the first album consisted of vocalist Danny Rexon (also known as Dirtchild Danny or D.C. Danny), guitarist Vic Zino, drummer Joey Cirera and bass player Luke Rivano. The current line-up features guitarist Andy Dawson in Vic Zino's place. They were among the first bands to emerge in what has been known as "The New Wave of Swedish Sleaze" along with bands such as CRASHDÏET, Hardcore Superstar, Babylon Bombs and Vains of Jenna but just like their fellow genre-mates...
