From Lake Tahoe to "Dragontown," Chuck Garric has been quietly building a resume as one of the most rock solid bass players in the business. From playing with L.A. Guns and Ronnie James Dio, to becoming a stable mate in Alice Cooper's solo band since 2002, plus stints playing the "Gene Simmons" part in Eric Singer's nod to the 90's version of KISS - in Singer's cover band, ESP, Garric is now breaking his silence. And he is determined for the world to recognize the talents he possesses outside of the confines of bass guitar. In addition to switching from four strings to six, Chuck Garric has also assumed the role of lead vocalist and front man, in his relatively new band, Beasto Blanco.
Beasto Blanco was formed in 2012 by Garric and lead guitarist Chris Latham. Together, they set out to create a live, raw power, rock & roll band that would let them indulge in their influences and imagery that shaped their collective musical background. To rear the sound out of the Beast, the band hired Garric's Cooper bandmate, Tommy Henriksen, to produce their debut CD, "Live Fast, Die Loud." Right from the first roar of recording, they realized they were on to something great, as Beasto Blanco is a band that's tapping into a truly unique rock sound - staying true to their old school roots, with a innovative attitude and fresh technology.
Although Garric is currently on tour with Alice Cooper, supporting Motley Crue on their "Final Tour," he's chomping at the bit to unleash 'the Beast' again, once a substantial break occurs in Alice's constant touring cycle. While on a short reprieve, Chuck Garric granted Rock Music Star an exclusive interview. During our discussion, Chuck Garric revealed to us what he has planned next for all of his Alice Cooper fans and the Beasto Blanco converts.
