Biography

Argentina (1980 – present)

There are at least 3 bands with this name:

1. An Argentinian Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Band.
2. A Romanian Rock Band;
3. An R&B/new jack swing group of the early 90’s.



1.By the end of the 70s Pappo was in Europe, and there he learned about Heavy Metal, a musical genre still in formation.

When he returned to Argentina he decided to play that type of music, but since it wouldn’t fit in his solo career (Pappo’s Blues), he formed a new band. Cohen, Pappo’s Blues’ drummer didn’t fit with this new style, so he was replaced by Michel Peyronel. Boff Serafine was added as a second guitarrist, and Juan Carlos García Haymes as the lead singer. Vitico continued playing bass from Pappo’s Blues to Riff.

On November 14, 1980, Pappo’s Blues separation was announced at Sala Uno, together with the lineup of Riff, so the last performance of one band marked the first one of the latter. It was a total success, but to the audience, a singer like Haymes didn’t fit with the band; Pappo was the carismatic figure of the band, wether it’s Pappo’s Blus or a new band. The audience preferred his voice since they were more familiar with it.

With Pappo as the lead singer, the band’s first LP, Ruedas De Metal was released in 1981. This record featured some of the first videoclips in Argentina.

On July 9 of the same year they performed at Obras together with Plus.
