Wotcha, you Crazy Cats! Some of you might remember there was a time when I had my own radio show on the, sadly now defunct, TBFM. Well, just lately, I’ve been thinking of giving radio another go. the difference this time being, it will take form of a podcast and it will be monthly, instead […]
Dazzle Rebel is a multi-creative with a long career as a songwriter, stage and studio musician, rock DJ and video presenter.
Dazzle Rebel has performed with many established acts including members of Guns N’ Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Skunk Anansie, Alice Cooper and many others. He was a founding member of Red Star Rebels, bassist in New Generation Superstars and guest bass player for Brides of Destruction filling in for Nikki Sixx. As a songwriter, he has created a vast songbook of music including collaborations with other artists with styles ranging from hard rock and metal to electronic and ambient soundscapes. He is currently writing music for creative media while working on new music for his solo career.
Born on the cusp of the Gen X and Millennial cohorts, Dazzle Rebel sits in that weird void between young and hip and venerated musical veteran. Out of time and out of place, his music is neither cool, or classic but that’s the way he likes it. His sound is heavily influenced by the 90’s alternative scene and fringe legends such as Warren Zevon and Captain Beefheart.
After two decades as a bass player for hire, he released his debut solo EP “The Attic Transmission” in October 2020. This was followed in December that year by the single “Back Home and Sober”, an ode to those glorious nights on the town, spent in the company of your besties. A new single “Blood Red Valentine” was released on 29th January 2021 and another EP will follow in Spring.
Dazzle Rebel’s love for motorcycles runs as deep as his love for music. His growing Moto Vloggin’ YouTube channel “Dazzle Rebel Rides” gives him an outlet to share that love with other motorcycle enthusiasts. Due to the growing reputation of this channel, you could argue that he is better known in some circles as a YouTube MotoVlogger than he is a musician!
