Fret Michaels

Fret Michaels began his musical aspirations as a roadie/guitar tech for his older brother who was a top scoring guitarist on Guitar Hero. It wasn't until someone told him that the guitar used for the game wasn't really a guitar, that he set out on a mission to live and learn what it meant to be a true master of the six-string. His first "real" guitar was from Sears (we use the term "real" very loosely here, but I digress...) which was a gift from his parents in 1984. In his eyes, this was a gift from God! Fret spent every day for the next 30 years playing Poison solos and practicing his demonic pentatonic scales and arpeggios.

Several years back, along with his high school buddy and former Sunset Strip drummer, Chico Torres, he decided to start Sunset Strip and the rest is history in the making...
