VON FREDDIE MERCURY BIS ZU LYNYRD SKYNYRD: MICHAEL CARTELLONE WIRD 60
- Jun 18, 2022
Michael Cartellone, who turns 60 on June 7, is one of the new generation of drummers, after the drumming heavyweights of the sixties and seventies, who established themselves from the eighties on. And it was here that he earned a glittering name for himself. In 1989, as a founding member of the Damn Yankees, he became world famous in one fell swoop, playing with Ted Nugent, Tommy Shaw (Styx) and Jack Blades (Night Ranger). In the nineties he was featured on the Freddie Mercury posthumous compilation THE GREAT PRETENDER, played on albums by Accept, Vince Neil (Mötley Crüe), John Wetton (King Crimson, Asia), Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple), Peter Frampton, on releases by his ex-colleagues Shaw and Blades, and has been a member of Lynyrd Skynyrd since 1999.
