MARK REALE

Although the New York based band RIOT was formed in 1975 by guitarist Mark Reale, they reached their biggest success in the early ‘80s with the classic release FIRE DOWN UNDER. The band then went on to release a number of albums before releasing the landmark disc THUNDERSTEEL . The now reunited, classic THUNDERSTEEL lineup consists of, in addition to founder Mark Reale, Tony Moore on vocals, Don Van Stavern on bass, Bobby Jarzombek on drums, with Mike Flyntz on second guitar. We caught up with Mark backstage at the Sweden Rock Festival to discuss some of the happenings in the past, present and future of RIOT, as well as his side venture, WESTWORLD.
