Biography

Guitarist and songwriter Rusty Anderson is a musician who has balanced a wellrespected career on his own with a very successful parttime gig as a sideman and studio musician, which has seen him work with everyone from Paul McCartney to Neil Diamond. Rusty Anderson grew up in La Hambra, California, and in the mid1970’s formed his first band, a hard rock outfit called Eulogy, when he was only 13. Eulogy won a sizable local following and earned an audition with Arista records head Clive Davis, but the band was never signed and broke up without releasing a recording. Anderson soon formed a new band, The Living Daylights, which gave him a greater opportunity to indulge his fondness for offbeat psychedelic and progressive rock; while The Living Daylights also failed to break into the big time, a copy of their demo tape made its way to producer David Kahne, who was impressed with Anderson’s guitar skills and invited him to contribute some solos to an album he was producing for The Bangles, 1986’s Different Light. Anderson continued to work as a session musician while pursuing his own projects; he was briefly a member of Animal Logic, a shortlived supergroup featuring former Police drummer Stewart Copeland and Return to Forever bassist Stanley Clarke, and later was guitarist and songwriter with the alternative rock band Ednaswap, who released three albums between 1995 and 1998, but received their greatest success through another artist when Natalie Imbruglia scored an international hit with the song “Torn”
