Brian Hand of Power Of Music Productions conducted an interview with BULLETBOYS frontman Marq Torien after the band’s January 13 concert at Dewey’s Pub in Seymour, Connecticut. You can now watch the chat below.
When asked about the reunion of BULLETBOYS‘ original lineup — Torien on vocals, Mick Sweda on guitar, Lonnie Vencent on bass and Jimmy D’Anda on drums — for a one-night-only New Year’s Eve weekend show on December 30, 2011 at Hollywood, California’s Club Vodka at the legendary Key Club on the Sunset Strip, Marq told Australian journalist Steve Mascord in a 2012 interview, “It was a wonderful, wonderful night — a magical night. It was for one night only, to get together for the fans right before the New Year.”
He added, “I love Jimmy and Mick and Lonnie — very much so. We’re all like brothers; sometimes we’re feuding, sometimes we’re loving, sometimes we’re not talking. But we made some amazing music together. And it was just a wonderful night, man. And hopefully we’ll be able to come, at some point, to some resolve in the future to hopefully play some more shows. I know I’m open to it. I know I would love more than anything to continue on with it with my three other mates.”
BULLETBOYS was one of the prominent bands in the flourishing Hollywood metal scene during the late 1980s, with numerous smash hits such as “Smooth Up In Ya”, “For The Love Of Money” and “Hang On St. Christopher” off the group’s platinum-selling classic self-titled debut and follow-up, “Freakshow”, dominating both MTV and radio airwaves.
