Adam Bomb (born Adam Brenner, 14 August 1963) is an American guitarist and singer, who has worked with a number of musicians including TKO, Black 'N Blue, Steel Pulse, John Paul Jones, and Michael Monroe.

Early[edit]

In 1979, Adam Bomb and Geoff Tate started a cover band called Tyrant. Later, he joined the band TKO, with whom he recorded the album In Your Face. In 1982, Bomb flew to Los Angeles and auditioned for Kiss. Bomb was not chosen, so he moved to Hollywood and shared an apartment with Jeffrey Isbell (better known as Izzy Stradlin). He met neighbor, Tommy Thayer, a guitarist for the band Black N' Blue, who suggested he should call his band 'Adam Bomb'. The band Movie Star opened for TKO at The Showbox in 1983. Adam recorded his first demos with producer Rick Keefer while playing gigs with Steeler as a replacement. One year later, Bomb recorded songs with drummer Chuck Ruff and bassist Cliff Williams of AC/DC, and finished his album Fatal Attraction.[1]

The Adam Bomb Band[edit]

Bomb signed a management deal with Leber Krebs, and moved to New York to start the Adam Bomb Band with former Billy Idol drummer Gregg Gerson, Billy Idol/Riot bassist Phil Feit, and Aerosmith guitarist Jimmy Crespo. They recorded Fatal Attraction in 1985.[2] The band later moved to Los Angeles, and for a time, opened for bands such as Armored Saint and Metallica.

The follow-up album contained mainly left over material from their debut release, and so Pure S.E.X. (1990) had indifferent critical reviews.[2]

2011[edit]

In 2011, Adam Bomb bassist Paul Del Bello and drummer Violet Cannibal had started recording on a 3 CD Rock On, Rock Hard, Rock Animal. The album featured cover songs as well as some original material. Bomb recorded "Affection" (written by Little Steven), continued touring, and lived in Holland where he wrote books. In July 2016, he recorded a single called "They Only Love You When You're Dead" with drummer Bobby Reynolds, keyboardist Alan St Jon, saxophonist Arno Hecht, and Phil Feit.
