I've always loved Bernie's playing and writing with him again has
surprised us both in the diversity of influences we're able to draw
on, but it is really the same racket we've always made! (John
or Guy McCoy Tormé, are ROBIN GUY, JOHN McCOY and BERNIE TORME.
takes up the story...
writing songs with Bernie and we were jamming occasionally and we were
asked if we fancied helping out by playing at a charity gig for Clive
Burr's M.S, we've both known Clive a long long time so of course we said
Robin Guy was working with Bernie and Alex Kane (Antiproduct) and knew
some of Bernie's stuff so seemed the obvious choice...we had a quick
rehearsal and jammed our way through the gig, which went down very well
and we were asked if we would play at a festival in Cambridgeshire the
next month, we had another rehearsal and played to a few thousand bikers
between Wishbone Ash and Saxon, it went really well again and we
collectively realised we had something very special..." More...
known for heroically stepping in and saving the day for OZZY OSBOURNE
and BLIZZARD OF OZZ, when RANDY RHOADS tragically died, also for world
tours, hits and international fame as IAN GILLAN'S axe-man in GILLAN,
and forming DESPERADO with TWISTED SISTER frontman DEE SNIDER & ex IRON
MAIDEN drummer CLIVE BURR, ATOMIC ROOSTER, TORME with LA GUNS singer
PHILIP LEWIS, SILVER and much much more...
McCOY - Lead Bass/Living Legend/Larger Than Life.
frankly who John hasn't played with, written for, or produced over the
years isn't worth writing about!
A small few
include GILLAN, MAMMOTH, SAMSON, JOEY BELLADONNA (ANTHRAX), U.K. SUBS,
ATOMIC ROOSTER, SUN RED SUN etc etc. A man mountain with a huger sound,
it should also be known that JOHN McCOY has played on over 50 albums..!
- Powerhouse tribal drum wh*re, Robin has already slammed drums with
BRUCE DICKINSON (IRON MAIDEN), FAITH NO MORE, LARS FREDERIKSEN (RANCID),
CASEY CHAOS (AMEN), THE BUSINESS, RACHEL STAMP, ALL ABOUT EVE, ADAM ANT,
& many others.
loud, obnoxious style helps him fit perfectly between Bernie's wit, and
John's charm, in fact you could say (of GMT) it's a three-way
marriage gone horribly right!
released two albums, BITTER & TWISTED in 2006 and more recently EVIL
TWIN in late November 2008 (which featured TWISTED SISTER singer DEE
SNIDER guesting on the opening track): both albums have received much
critical acclaim, as have the bands live shows including the Rock and
Blues Custom Show 2007, Hard Rock Hell, Guitarfest, Fleetwoodstock and
also recently headlined "The Viking's Ball" at Hard Rock Hell III to an
ecstatic reaction from the rockers and metallers of all ages who were
present. GMT's version of "Mr Crowley", which Bernie played with Ozzy at
Madison Square Gardens in 1982 and is GMT's tribute to Randy Rhoads and
Ozzy, was also subsequently voted best cover of the entire four day
currently working on a new album for release in 2010.
had heard of Robin, and he did a session at my studio - I was really
impressed. John and I had a blow with him, and the chemistry was
John and I had done a few things since Gillan, he'd produced Torme's
'Back to Babylon', which I felt didn't really work at all as well as
the live band did. We still insult each other about that!
when there's mischief to be made, you need to bring in the experts. GMT
are old but dextrous hands...There's something about a tough and
destructive three-piece that never fails to hit the spot..."

has come...Evil Twin is so raw, it makes sushi taste like
seven-month-old haddock..." (Geoff Barton) Classic Rock magazine Feb 2009
"It's been a long time since I've seen a band that has excited me this
much. GMT might take its cue from such powerhouse trios of the ilk of
Cream and Mountain, but if you can imagine the latter with enough
performance enhancing anabolic steroids to run the Olympics, you have
some idea of the power of GMT. If there is a better three-piece than GMT
currently doing the rounds then my
name is Lord Lucan."
