Four By Fate
Some pedigrees write themselves while on the way up and then if lucky, they become as one. FOUR BY FATE is the culmination of six, then four talented, seasoned musicians who came together by calculated chance. This end result is quite plainly driven.
John Regan, Bass guitar, producer has the monumental musical background that would eventually lead to the other three musicians in the band. His touring credits stem from Peter Frampton, Stephen Stills, John Waite, Dave Edmunds, Scandal and Ace Frehley’s Comet to mention some. Recording - Frampton, Stones, Jagger, Bowie, David Lee Roth, Robin Trower, Billy Idol – and more equals. ‘Throw’ in Grammy winner and nominee as well.
Tod Howarth, Singer, songwriter, guitarist, Keyboardist, producer encountered John while he was on tour with Cheap Trick doing keys and vocals and ended up joining Ace Frehley’s Comet with John already solidified. Tod’s resume through the years included recording and touring with 707, Ted Nugent Band, Cheap Trick, Frehley’s Comet.
Rob Affuso, Drums and Percussion came from Rock Royalty as well, Silver/Gold/Platinum group, SKID ROW. Lending his pounding prowess to FXF by adding an element that only drummers do, beat things. 22 million albums worldwide, four Billboard top 100 songs and seven number one videos the band was awarded ‘Best New Artist’ by AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS. They performed on mega tours with Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Guns n’ Roses, Motley Crue and Metallica.
Pat Gasperini, guitarist, singer, songwriter, keyboardist and producer has mapped his way through the business not only by way of talent but his songwriting ability – EMI/Island Def Jam. Solid bands, Pound and Flywheel were elevated by the tunesmith and managed to chart in the US and Canada.
But there’s more to this foundation. The original ‘start up’ drummer was Stet Howland from WASP until an auto accident set him back from recording the first 6 tracks. He was replaced by drummer AJ Pero from Twisted Sister. AJ was asked to join after delivering those first 6 epic tracks. Tragically, AJ passed away in early 2015.
Sean Kelly, guitarist, singer, songwriter from Canada was their original other guitarist who helped jumpstart the band as well. His credits were with Helix and Nelly Furtado. He is credited with guitar work on this album.
With a handful of shows and a few live broadcasts the band is about to release their debut CD titled ‘RELENTLESS’ in the UK, Europe and Scandinavia on AMAZING RECORDS.
The band’s new record, “Relentless,” hits shelves May 6, 2016.
