Issue 40 Interview With Iggie Pistolero - Cover.jpg

Hard core rock guitarist Iggie Pistolero with Gypsy Pistoleros from Worcester, Worcestershire United Kingdom.

“I love my job. It’s the only job I’m allowed to drink while I work. I’m a musician; a guitarist, a rock n’ roll fiend!


I’ve toured around the world and played with bands like Alice Cooper, Motley Crue, Ratt, Twisted Sister, L.A. Guns, Faster Pussycat. My life-long dream is now a reality, and my reality is a blur! I will sleep when I’m dead.”

If that makes sense. My whole image has arrived from just bein’ me and livin’ my true love of rock n’ roll.


Rock Legend News: In August 2013 Gaz Harris and Wrathchild parted ways. Gaz joined Gypsy Pistoleros. He seems to fit the band perfectly. In fact, the band chemistry appears to be on fire. How do you feel about what is happening?

Iggie Pistolero: Yea, Gaz has walked into the band at the right time after the departure of my fellow long time friend and singer Lee Pistolero. We started writing a new style of songs for the band, moving away from the Spanish influence which has a larger part of Lee’s idea than mine. I never understood why an English band would
