Brent Muscat (born April 23, 1967) is a musician who has played in various hard rock bands, most notably Faster Pussycat.

Bio[edit]

On April 21, 2007, Muscat circulated via MySpace an open invitation to Taime Downe and Greg Steele to reunite Faster Pussycat with him.[1]

Brent's version of Faster Pussycat toured Europe in Spring 2007 with Kurt Frohlich replacing Taime on vocals along with Todd Kerns on guitar.[2]

After a short name dispute with Taime Downe Brent dropped his claim and dissolved his incarnation of the band.[3]

Muscat currently lives in Las Vegas and has his own band called Sin City Sinners.[4] The band also features Todd Kerns (ex-Age of Electric), Rob Cournoyer (ex-Raging Slab), and musician/actor Zachary Throne.

Muscat is one of the characters in the book Sex Tips from Rock Stars by Paul Miles, published by Omnibus Press in July 2010.[5]
