Profile Formed in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1988 by lead guitarist Tommy Attitude, frontman Mark Loblaw, rhythm guitarist Frank Belloumini, Bassist Sam Brutto and drummer Greg “Lizard” Feddock. Bad Attitude quickly formed a local following playing bars such as Oliver’s, Taps, Goofy’s, and renting the Polish Falcon Hall for larger venues. They begin playing out of town venues like Doctor Feelgood’s in Conneaut, Ohio and Hotel Evergreen’s in Edinboro Pa.

In 1989 Mark left the band and was replaced by Blaise Brutto, formerly from Spoiled Rotten, Night Witch and Von Rocks. Blaise. The band discovered when Blaise and Tommy hit the stage together that there was no need for a second guitar player so Frank and the band parted ways. Bad Attitude moved toward bigger venues including Sherlocks and King’s Rooks Club, both in Erie Pa.

In 1990, the boys felt they had found the feel and the sound that finally clicked, they began laying tracks for their 1991 debut full length LP, Prisoners of Rock, through their own independent record label, Roadline Records. The album hit the shelves in Cruiser’s, Dig Dio’s, Music Scene, Record Den, Record Country, Boro Tunes, and World of Music Records. The record sales prompted the interest of national acts such as The Godz, Molly Hatchet, Dirty Looks and Fog Hat. Bad Attitude seemed to be on a roll.

With the departure of Greg Feddock the boys brought in the talent of Steven Starr, who brought more energy and flash to the bands already high energy and hard hitting stage shows. Bad Attitude was now ready for national exposure and began booking dates for a mega tour lasting for more than a year.

Bad Attitude would share the stage with greats such as David Lee Roth, Nazareth and Night Ranger. The band had some major label interest but nothing ever panned out. They were working on material for a second release when grunge hit and the band members went their separate ways. Tommy Attitude put together another formation of the act but that too would come to an end. Each member would become married with children and do their own thing. They never lost their desire to play and still get together to play the occasional Bad Attitude show.
