Guy Mann-Dude is an American-born musician who was best known in the late 1980s and early 1990s after his self named band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1988. He was also guitar player for the Michael Angelo Band before going solo.[1]

Born Guy Shiffman, before getting into heavy metal, he was a professional drummer for 10 years. He toured with the lead singer of 'Yes', Jon Anderson for the 'Animation' tour. Although an accomplished drummer doing studio work and leading his own bands, he turned to his first love 'guitar' and re-invented himself to land a record deal with MCA. He subbed for Vinnie Colaiutta on drums and years later played with him while on guitar for a jingle. Guy Mann-Dude produced a few bands in the Czech Republic and had his 'Mannic Distortion' album released there. In the 90's, he studied jazz and classical piano with Terry Trotter. He went on to score cartoons, movie shorts and a film. Guy has a son who lives in the Czech republic, Wyatt Mann.

He also was part of the heavy metal supergroup The Dudes Of Wrath along with Paul Stanley of Kiss and Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe, who were specially assembled to record a song called Shocker from the movie of the same name.[2]
