Roberto García (born August 13, 1972 in Oviedo, Spain) is the bassist for the power metal band WarCry, also known for his work on Avalanch.[1]

History[edit]

García's interest in music started around the age of five. The Spanish guitar, as well as the keyboard, were the instruments he first learned to play. Although his education was centered on classic authors, Roberto had been very interested since his adolescence in bands such as Metallica, Accept and Judas Priest.

In 1997, García asked his friend Alberto Rionda, from Avalanch, to give him guitar classes, and in that manner he became part of the band. He played on four Avalanch albums, La Llama Eterna, Llanto De Un Héroe, Días De Gloria and El Ángel Caído.

After personal and professional problems with Alberto Rionda, Garcia left Avalanch. In 2004, he joined the band WarCry, which had been formed by friends Víctor García and Alberto Ardines.

This Roberto Garcia should not be confused with the lead singer and guitarist of Fat Ming (born 1990, Cambridge, MA), most famous for his quote when he was still a young child, who when pressed by his father to befriend an African-American altar boy, responded "But Papa, I don't like a black boy."
