Heavy Bones Hint At Reunion
February 3, 2012
Heavy Bones, who released their self-titled debut album in 1992, have hinted that they will reform with a slightly altered line-up.
Original members Joel Ellis (of Cats In Boots fame) and guitarist Gary Hoey recently got together at NAMM for the first time in many years. Joining the duo was Joel’s son Joey Angel, a very talented musician who is slated to take over Rex Tennyson’s bass duties in the band. Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali is also slated to return to the band for the reunion.
Vocalist Joel Ellis tells Sleaze Roxx, “the Heavy Bones reunion will most likely happen near summer or end of summer. Nothing has been set in stone, and its all pre-planning talk between band members, so theres nothing guaranteed yet. Anything can happen.”
All of the Heavy Bones members have busy schedules of their own, but word has it that the guys will be sitting down for a Pow-Wow after Gary Hoey comes off the road with Lita Ford.
Joel Ellis and Joey Angel will be doing an unplugged radio interview and in studio performance this Saturday at 7pm PST on Guy Towe’s music show at www.LATalkRadio.com. The pair will play a couple of unplugged tunes and be talking about Cats In Boots, Heavy Bones and the ‘Stonsey Zep Country’ vibe of their new project Ellis & Angel.
Demon Doll Records recently reissued Cats In Boots’ 1989 ‘Kicked & Klawed’ debut albumwith the very hard to find bonus track “Tokyo Screamin”.
