hOLY sCHiTT, i cAn'T bELiEVe that the Punky Meadows myth is true! When I first heard Frank Zappa and Terry Bozzio speak of a pouty lipped rock star with beautiful shiny hair and impeccable hips, teeth and gums, I certainly thought that the character was 100% purely fictional. I mean, not only that, but I thought that this type of hugely superficial, androgynous rock star with the big hair and spandex pants wasn't even a reality until the early 80's. Some people call it 'Glam-Metal', I call it 'Cokc-Rock'. But any way you draw it up, it's still some funny ass schitt for a grown man to be indulging. And, I always felt that practitioners of said genre only travelled such a degrading path because they severely lacked musical talent and needed a large gimmick to distract you from that fact. Zappa's song 'Punky's Whips depicts such a glam-boy who casts a seductive spell over Zappa's own drummer, Terry Bozzio. Bozzio gets hypnotized and drawn to the magic-wielding glam-boy, all the while protesting that he's NOT GAY! Well, as it turns out, the glam-boy in the song is an actual living entity named Punky Meadows. And, he was the first lead guitarist for a band named 'ANGEL'. No schitt! It's all true and I found out today! Apparently, this band ANGEL begun in 1975 and had quite a few albums before quietly disbanding. At what point I don't know. I guess it was so quiet that no one noticed. But, the word is that they were active and relatively popular during the second half of the 1970's......So, who was there during this era and had some exposure to this group, either by a friend, or the media or their little sister. Who the heck has some info on this group ANGEL, forever immortalized in Zappa's Punky's Whips???
