Angelo Rossi is a musician and writer best known as a former member of the California-based rock band Pablo Cruise.

After signing a contract with BMI, Rossi joined Pablo Cruise in 1980 as a second guitarist to strengthen the band's live performance and performed on their last two albums. He appeared on the Reflector album and for three years toured and participated in recording sessions with the band. With two small children and a family to support, Rossi left the group after its final album, Out Of Our Hands, was finished, to pursue a more family-oriented career. He was replaced by Stef Birnbaum just prior to the album's release.

Living in the San Francisco Bay area, Angelo soon found work in sales with Dun & Bradstreet Computer Systems Division, TSI International and then Britton Lee, Inc and finally, IBM. He is currently a practicing realtor at Coldwell Banker in Woodside, California. He is a certified Pro Tools engineer.

Angelo is a long-time BMI recording artist, an avid recording enthusiast and a voting member of NARAS. He is a vocalist and guitarist in the blues ensemble, AJ Crawdaddy, and produced, engineered and recorded their first two albums, "Vaporized" and "Slow Cookin", at The Cave Recording Studio, Mountain View, CA. Both albums were mixed and mastered at Renown Sound, FL by Brett Brown.
