Happy Birthday to the legendary, Punky Meadows, lead guitarist of 1970s hard rock/glam band, Angel. Their record label was Casablanca, same as KISS. But unfortunately unlike KISS they never got the recognition they deserved.

Angel was (and still is) one of my favorite bands. I was too young to go see them live, but I had all the albums. My sister loved them too. My great-grandmother even loved them. They were amazing!

With so many thrilling Angel songs to choose from, here are just a few of my favorites:

And just for fun, here’s a Frank Zappa tribute to Punky Meadows, with Terry Bozzio on lead vocals singing, Punky’s Whips
