Probably best known for stints with GILLAN and OZZY OSBOURNE, Torme previously released a single and EP on Jet Records fronting his own punk band, touring with GENERATION X, BOOMTOWN RATS and much missed new-wavers BETHNAL and appearing on the Live At The Vortex compilation. After leaving Gillan, plans to form a band with Derwood and Mark Laff from Generation X and Everton Williams from Bethnal were abandoned when he was hurriedly recruited by Osbourne following the death of Randy Rhoads. Teaming up with Williams once more in ELECTRIC GYPSIES, he subsequently played with members of SHAM 69, LA GUNS and TWISTED SISTER before resuming his solo career.
