Biography

Los Angeles, California, United States (1980 – 1986, 2001 – 2003, 2011 – present)

Missing Persons is a which formed in Los Angeles, California, United States in 1980. The band originally consisted of Dale Bozzio (vocals), Warren Cuccurullo (guitar), Patrick O’Hearn (bass, vocals), Chuck Wild (keyboards) and Terry Bozzio (drums). Cuccurullo and The Bozzios were previously members of Frank Zappa’s backing band.

The band released three albums: “Spring Session M” (1982), “Rhyme & Reason” (1984) and “Color in Your Life” (1986). The band split in 1986 and the band members moved on to other projects. Warren Cuccurullo became the guitarist for Duran Duran and Dale Bozzio and Patrick O’Hearn each pursued solo careers. Terry Bozzio toured as the drummer for several rock musicians, including Steve Vai, Dweezil Zappa and Jeff Beck and later formed his own solo band.

Warren, Dale and Terry reformed Missing Persons in 2001 and performed several concerts throughout the United States. Terry Bozzio left the band in late 2001, and the band continued until 2003.

Cuccurullo and Dale Bozzio reformed Missing Persons once again in 2011 for a reunion tour.

As of 2013, Cuccurullo is no longer touring with Missing Persons. According to Dale Bozzio at the Tiki Room show in Costa Mesa, CA, Warren is suing the band for the image on their Spring Session M album. Terry Bozzio has changed drastically in appearance with much longer hair, a different colour (it used to be black) when compared to the Terry Bozzio Official page on Facebook.

    real missing persons are a british lofi/diy group from late 70s/early 80s, not a new wave pop band.

    one of my most favorite 80's bands. Dale's solo album was great too.

    With all the 80s comebacks. How is it this band hasn't released any new material? Its ok to sound 80s right now. In fact its the perfect time for the sound.

    I think Spring Session M is their best album. Real drums are used on their debut and Terry Bozzio is a great Drummer! And you got to love Dale's very girly, charming and quirky vocal delivery. Great band but what's up with their third album? Their third record may have been when they were starting to lose their original spark and just resort to doing mindless cheese pop.
