Circus Diablo Biography
The brainchild of Camp Freddy founder Billy Morrison, Circus Diablo was formed in Los Angeles, California USA and the line-up features Morrison on vocals, lead guitarist Billy Duffy best known for being a founding member of The Cult, rhythm guitarist Ricky Warwick, ex-Fuel frontman Brett Scallions on bass+vocals, Charles Ruggiero on drums. Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum lends his abilities to the record, but Ruggiero sits behind the kit when the band performs live.
Even with just one album under their collective belts, it seems Circus Diablo has formed a recognizable sound, uniquely their own. The self-titled album, which was released in July 2007, starts strong with the band's first single "Loaded". The catchy alt-Metal sound landed Circus Diablo a touring spot during Ozzfest. The band was personally invited on to the festival roster by Ozzy Osbourne himself.
