Born in Seattle, Washington USA in 1964, Adam Bomb played in various local bands as a guitarist and joined US West coast band TKO in the early ’80s. He recorded one album with them, “In your face”, without being credited though.
Adam Bomb left TKO early in ’84 to start a solo career, then relocated to New York with a major manager, David Krebs (known for this work with AC/DC, Aerosmith, Scorpions & Ted Nugent) and recorded his first solo album with numerous famous musicians (including AC/DC’s Cliff Williams): Fatal Attraction. First published in Japan in November ’84, the album obtained a worldwide release through Geffen rec, in ’85. His band then included Jimmy Crespo (ex-Aerosmith) on guitar, Phil Feit (ex-Billy Idol) on bass & Sandy Slavin (ex-Riot) on drums, as Adam handled lead vocals and lead guitar.
Despite excellent press reviews all over the world and major US club tour, the LP didn’t set the world on fire, which was mostly die to “record company policy” as Adam stated later.
The band hit England late in ’86 to record a second album, “Dangerous when lit”, and played a couple of UK dates including The Marquee. Completed in ’87, theLP retitled “Pure S.E.X.” hasn’t been released so far due again to various business problems.
However, Adam Bomb kept playing all around the world from ’87 to ’89 with local backing bands in each country he visited, making him “the Chuck Berry of the ’80s”!
In ’87, he was featured in Playgirl as one of the sexiest rock stars of all time and elected sexiest man of the year alongside Malcolm Forbes at Playgirl’s 15th anniversary. The very same year, he jammed with Chuck Berry at New York’s Limelight club’s new year’s eve party. Having already played the USA from New York to Los Angeles, Adam Bomb concentrated more on Europe this year, and played the likes of UK, France, Holland, Sweden, Belgium and Denmark.
