XYZ (1988-1991): a Heavy Metal band from Los Angeles, California, USA.


os Angeles French-American hard rock band XYZ led by vocalist Terry Ilous with Marc Richard Diglio (guitar), Patt Fontaine (bass) and Paul Monroe (drums) originally played in a Blues based style but the sound evolved in the studio with the help of Don Dokken into an almost replica of his own band's style with Illous sounding much like Dokken himself. But despite the obvious attempt at cloning, XYZ produced quality songs in their own merit leading to a reasonably successful self-titled debut in 1989, especially after the support tour of the USA. with Enuff Z' Nuff and Alice Cooper. 'Capitol Records' signed them for the follow-up Hungry (1991). With George Turko's production the band established a heavier sound but featuring more Blues especially with a cover of Free's Fire And Water on this latest album. The band, however, was a commercial failure over-all and eventually broke up.
