LoNero Spotlight

"King of Damage" from their CD J.F.L.
TGS Spotlight Player from November 21, 2014

RECOMMENDED BY: John Haring, Executive Producer - "Met these guys when The Guitar Show promoted the Nashville stop on the Tony MacAlpine tour.  LoNero produced a "wall-of-sound" that lends an interesting heavy metal vibe to their prog rock guitar underpinnings."

When LONERO married groove and melody driven songs with rhythm and verse then focused it all on the audience, Guitarcore was born! Legendary rock photographer Neil Zlozower describes LoNero’s style as, “Mean, intense, nasty, urgent, aggressive, and angry! I am definitely a fan!!!!” Bill Lonero has performed and recorded with Cliff Williams (AC/DC), Stu Hamm (Joe Satriani/Steve Vai), Mike Mangini (Dream Theater/Steve Vai/Extreme), Simon Kirke (Bad Company), Gigi Gonaway (Mariah Carey) and many more. LoNero and his bandmates James Manalili, Mike McKaigg, and Marco Bicca have continued to win over new audiences by supporting the Pat Travers Band and opening for legends Michael Schenker, Uli Roth, and Tony MacAlpine. With recently added a third guitarist Nasser Abdala, LoNero remains true to the Guitarcore principles of creating a real bond with their fans.
