uddy Roxx was started in August 2002 with Marco "The Sentinel" Moretti (vocals; former member of Italian Power Metal act Savers who had opened for Dio and also realized a CD), Fabio "Hermes" Chiesa (guitar/back. vocals), Luigi "Sickboy" Brancaccio (guitar/back. vocals), Adriano "Renegadrian" Cilenti (bass/back. vocals) and Armando "Beatmaster" Cereoli (drums/back. vocals) to relive the Hard Rocking styles of the 1980s. This '80's Metal style band would release their debut self-titled EP promo after gigging in the Rome area with other local acts IV Luna, Rainspawn, Jailbreak and friends Graal (Italian for "Grail") at local clubs Fuze Pub, Alkatraz, Jailbreak and Radio Londra under the influence of such acts as Motley Crue, Whitesnake, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Mr. Big and Tokyo Blade.
