The roots of BUGZY date back to late-1983, when 19-year-old guitarist/vocalist William "Bugsy" Boyer, keyboard player Franki Gorgo, and drummer Bob Kimmel crossed paths as members of a full-time, internationally touring cover band called Pentagon. By 1985, Bob and Franki had struck out to create their own original material in an attempt to sell songs to a major artist or publishing company. Initially still a member of Pentagon, Bugsy would join their sessions whenever his schedule allowed, but by 1988 the three had officially joined forces and fleshed out a lineup to begin performing live-"BUGZY" being the simple result of needing a name for their first gig. Within a year, a short-lived production deal with producer Tony Bongiovi led the group to record a few tracks in New York City's historic Power Station studio; and in 1990, a production/management deal with L.A. record producer John Ryan (Santana, etc.) resulted in three years of nonstop work on new material with an assortment of session musicians. Into the mid-'90s, with the help of hit record producer Chris Lord-Alge, BUGZY was courted by no less than three major labels-RCA, Polygram, and EMI-but the trio's decade of hard work would shockingly fail to yield the release of one single piece of music... until now! 20+ years later, Divebomb Records is proud to shed light on BUGZY's Plan B: 17 tracks of spectacularly catchy AOR/hard rock culled from the band's extensive personal archives, and graciously rescued from permanent obscurity. Sure to delight diehard fans of heavy-hitters such as Bad English, Night Ranger, Survivor and The Hooters; the collection also boasts an all-new 20 page booklet featuring band interview covering the ins and outs behind this prolific songwriting team. For the fans, by the fans!
