BAD ATTITUDE

Country USA

Style Hard Rock

Formed in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1988 by guitar extraordinare, Tommy Attitude, Frontman, Mark Loblaw, Rhythm Guitar Frank Belloumini, Bass Guitar, Sam Brutto and Drummer, Greg Feddock (Lizard). They quickly form 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, making way for Frontman, Blaise Brutto, formerly from Spoiled Rotten, Night Witch and Von Rocks. Blaise, with his incredible vocal abilities and larger than life stage persona, brought Bad Attitude to an entire new level. The band discovered, a force of talent to be reconned with when Blaise and Tommy hit the stage together left no need for a second guitar player and 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.

The boys, sharing the stage with greats such as David Lee Roth, Nazareth and Night Ranger, blew through Fort Wayne and Angola Indiana, Columbus, Cinncinati, and Geneva On the Lake in Ohio, Buffalo New York, Louisville Kentucky, Fitzgerald, Albany and Ocila Georgia, Charleston South Carolina, Myrtle Beach North Carolina, gathering force and a dedicated following, all leading to The Great Michigan Tour where they rocked Jackson, Lansing, Shelbyville, Flint, Detroit, Upper Peninsula, Poniac, and BayCity. Bad Attitude’s thunder rocked the entire state
