Profile Big Bad Wolf was a sadly short-lived hard rock b side project of the legendary guitarist/songwriter Craig Chaquico, who played lead guitar with Jefferson Starship and later Starship. When Starship broke up in the early 90’s, Chaquico formed Big Bad Wolf complete with a good-looking rock singer, long hair, and power chords, continuing in the same vein as Starship, recording one eponymous titled album before disbanding. The problem was that it was 1991 and the rage was Seattle grunge music. Big hair was out, power chords were out, and ‘80s rock bands were out.

Despite months of showcasing, and the push of respected management, record labels weren’t interested. Big Bad Wolf’s line up included vocalist/guitarist Rolf Hartley, bassist Brett Bloomfield (Starship, Snail, Le Mans, Gillan) amd drummer Kenny Stavropoulos (Cacophony, Le Mans). Bloomfield hooked up with Deep Purple vocalist Ian Gillan on one of his solo ventures during which the band pulled in Mario Cippolina of Huey Lewis & the News as a stand in. Despite high profile support slots to Sammy Hagar and strong major label interest the band ultimately folded with Chaquico hitting the solo trail.
