One of the most sensational and exciting frontmen of his time, Randy O made an impact on the industry in his brief career run before eventually walking away from it completely.
Born in Pasadena California, Randy was not too far away from the members of one of his major inspirations, “Van Halen”. At 16 years old, a young Randy O went to a show at the LA Forum, where he saw Van Halen for the first time. When he saw the way singer, David Lee Roth commanded the stage, Randy knew he wanted to become a Rock N’ Roll front man. As Randy grew in his artistry, other influences bled through his vocal style, reminiscent of Rob Halford, front man of Judas Priest. He embraced the flashy and energetic persona of David Lee Roth, while singing with the powerful operatic vocals of Rob Halford.
In 1985, Randy O and his band Odin released their debut Studio EP “Don’t Take No For An Answer”. Their debut was a top selling record for “Greenworld Records,” charting in Japan for 9 months. Their success even landed them a segment in the 1988 Music Documentary, “Decline of the Western Civilization Part II” featuring bands such as Aerosmith, Kiss, and many other star studded acts of the time.
Later, Randy would leave Odin in search of other musical pursuits. Randy was signed to Vicky Hamilton’s management company (managing acts such as Guns N’ Roses, Motley Crue, Poison and Stryper).
Randy ended up landing a record deal with Atlantic Records in 1988, and would release his first solo record in 1990 titled “Lost & Found” with his new band “Lostboys” featuring Jeff Duncan, lead guitarist of Odin and his brother Pat Gainor.
FnA Records is proud to release FROM DEMOS TO ATLANTIC, an 18 track album of demos that eventually got the band signed to Atlantic Records. Many fans of the well-known cult band ODIN will love the LOST BOYS and the growth from the early days to a captivating band that ruled the Strip.
