Exclusive Interview with Mooer Artist Tommy Bolan

Tommy Bolan Mooer Pure Octave Eleclady LoFi

For those of us who aren’t hip give a us a brief background on you?

I am probably best known as the lead guitarist of the German heavy metal band “WARLOCK” (with Doro Pesch). I played on and did the World Tour and video for the Platinum/Gold selling Album “Triumph and Agony.”

What are you doing musically present?

I have my own band that I front called, N.Y.C (I sing lead vocals and play lead guitar), and I am also the lead guitarist of The Richie Ramone Band (original drummer of Ramones). I also sing lead vocals on many Ramones classics in our live show.

What’s coming up for you in the future?

A World Tour in support of the new Richie Ramone Band CD coming out called “Entitled.” It was mixed by Mark Needham (Pink, Killers, etc) and mastered by Stephen Marcussen (Prince, Stones, etc). I co-wrote on the disc as well. I am aslo writing the NEW NYC CD that is set to be produced by Grammy Nominated Producer Ulrich Wild (Static-X, Zombie, Otep, etc).

What do you think of the state of the music industry?

It has gotten tougher, as the industry has “splintered” in so many directions as far as A/R and actual labels and the way they sign bands now or even consider them.

Why do you use Mooer pedals?

Small size, BIG sound and pedal board friendly.
