The Hollywood Monsters‘ bio on its Facebook page states in part (with minor edits): “The Hollywood Monsters is the brainchild of vocalist, guitarist, composer Steph Honde, a French expatriate (he moved in LA in 2011). Steph first became noticed when fronting the band Mammoth, subsequently garnering a well-deserved reputation as a guitar virtuoso when playing in Cafe Bertrand, a French rock band he joined in 2004. The band played giant stadiums such as the Stade de France, with an audience capacity in excess of 80,000. Performing with classic rock giants such as AC/DC and Deep Purple, the latter for whom they opened on 36 dates across France in November 2006 and another 12 in March 2007. Steph has recorded 2 albums with Cafe Bertrand – Les Aires Empruntes (2005) and L’Art Delicat Du Rock’n Roll – both critically acclaimed and commercially successful, before leaving the band in 2010. Steph then embarked on a lengthy tour with Paul Di’Anno (original vocalist of Iron Maiden) before absconding to California. Once in Los Angeles, Steph befriended Tim Bogert, coaxed him out of retirement and convinced him to play on his debut album….and – voila! – The Hollywood Monsters were born!”
The Hollywood Monsters released their debut album Big Trouble in 2014.
