October 9, 2009
FNA RECORDS IS PROUD TO TELL YOU WE HAVE SIGNED ARTIST GREG LEON
Greg Leon was born in 1958 and grew up in Glendale, California, a foothills community of Los Angeles, and immediately made an impact on the blossoming live hard rock scene of Hollywood’s Sunset Strip in the late 70s.
Primarily playing guitar and handling vocals, the acts that he fronted were Suite 19, with future Crue drummer Tommy Lee, and the Greg Leon Invasion, with bassist Joey Vera (later of Armored Saint, Fate’s Warning and Anthrax) and drummer Carl Elizondo (later of Jag Wire, and playing under the stage name Carl James). Elizondo and Vera’s replacement, Chuck Stevens, played with Leon on the Greg Leon Invasion picture disc released by Azra/R2R in 1983. He took the place of Randy Rhoads in Quiet Riot, and as the pre-George Lynch guitarist in Dokken.
