Meadows kills it on Fallen Angel. Wild, diverse, and unpredictable in its duration, this could very well be my favorite rock album of 2016 so far.

Martin Popoff (BraveWords) interviews Punky Meadows
Hard to believe, but essentially, once legendary progressive hard rockers Angel put themselves asleep in 1980, we never heard much from any of the guys again (save for Gregg Guiffria), and that includes guitarist Punky Meadows, famed for being name-checked in a Frank Zappa bit due to his beyond pretty boy looks.
“I was done with the music business; I washed my hands of it,” explains Punky. “I started my own business and I was very successful, happy and the whole thing. And I just didn’t want anything to do with music anymore. Once I left LA... I mean, I love music, but I hate the music business, you know what I mean?”
But now he’s back with his first solo album, 36 years in the baking and making, called Fallen Angel, amusingly, just as his lead vocalist cohort in Angel Frank DiMino, has launched a solid record of his own under the DiMino brand.

Watch Punky Meadows’ ‘Straight Shooter’ Video: Exclusive Premiere
Fans of ‘70s cult favorites Angel will be happy to hear that former guitarist Punky Meadows is releasing his first new music in 35 years this week in the form of Fallen Angel, his debut solo release.
We are pleased to present the exclusive video premiere of “Straight Shooter,” one of 15 new Fallen Angels tracks that Meadows wrote with close friend Danny Farrow Aniello. The album also reunites him with former Angel bandmate Felix Robinson, who plays bass.
“This new video was so much fun to make and we all had a killer time working on it,” Meadows says. “You’ll find yourself singing along and doing your best air guitar solo. Rock on and keep the smokin’ guitar fires burning!”
The physical edition of Fallen Angel includes a 16-page booklet with photos of Meadows from across the years, many of which have never been seen before. There is also an autographed special edition, with a collector’s guitar pick and two additional songs, including one with vocals from another of Meadows’ former Angel bandmates, vocalist Frank DiMino.
Meadows will hit the stage on June 14 at B.B. King’s in New York City for a special concert to celebrate the release of Fallen Angel, and plans to hopefully play additional shows in the near future.

Legendary ANGEL Guitarist PUNKY MEADOWS: More 'Fallen Angel' Solo Album Details Revealed
Seminal guitarist Punky Meadows (ex-ANGEL) is set to release his first-ever solo album, "Fallen Angel", on May 20 via Main Man Records. The offering will be the first new music from the guitarist in years and features the soaring guitars and arena-sized rock sounds for which Meadows and ANGEL came to be known.
Meadows commented: "It feels great to be back and I can't wait for all my fans to hear my new album. It's badass, rocks and every song will have you rockin' and singing along. This album is diversified and has something for everyone while still keeping true to form. Everyone who played on this record had amazing performances and made this album killer! We run the streets! This is the album you will be playing in your house, in your car, when you work out and anywhere else your ears will take you. Long live rock n' roll!"
"Fallen Angel" will be available in two formats. The standard CD will include a 16-page booklet which features previously unreleased images of Punky Meadows throughout the years. A very special limited edition will also be available which is autographed by Punky and includes two bonus tracks, one with ANGEL lead singer Frank Dimino, as well as an exclusive Meadows guitar pick. Both formats are available for sale at MainManRecords.com.
Punky Meadows is best known as lead guitarist of the '70s band ANGEL (Casablanca Records). ANGEL, like labelmates KISS, were a highly successful theatrical band that headlined throughout the world, but was particularly successful in Japan. Punky was a huge influence to many musicians for not only his great feel, tone and unique style of guitar playing, but also his image that many have tried to emulate over the years. ANGEL released six albums on Casablanca before disbanding in 1981 due to the demise of the label. During his career, Punky had been sought after and asked to join such bands as KISS, AEROSMITH, NEW YORK DOLLS and Michael Bolton. Upon the disbanding of ANGEL, he occupied himself with successful business ventures while continuing to play guitar and write songs.
Through social media, fans have let him know that they want to hear from him and with his newfound passion in music and inspiration from close friend Danny Farrow Anniello, together they have written 15 new songs for "Fallen Angel".
In addition to Punky and Farrow, the band includes Felix Robinson (bass), Chandler Mogel (lead vocals), Bob Pantella (drums) and Charlie Cav (keyboards). Felix and Punky last worked together in ANGEL.
