HOW WEST BOUND FORMED
West Bound is an in-your-face five-piece hard rock band from Los Angeles, California. Their unique brand of entertainment fuses powerful bluesy vocals, hard-hitting guitars, a tight rhythm section, and a touch of keyboards which has had them compared to classic bands like Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake, Aerosmith, and modern rock bands like Rival Sons!
The band came together after vocalist Chas West (the Jason Bonham Band, Foreigner, Lynch Mob, Tribe of Gypsies) was contacted by Serafino Perugino, President of Frontiers Music srl, about doing a solo album. Perugino loved Chas’s vocals/ideas on the self-titled Resurrection Kings record (with Vinny Appice, Craig Goldy, and Sean McNabb) and wanted to do a solo record with him the following year.
Serafino wanted him to work with a producer/writer…West was on board and reached out to his old bandmate, friend, and co-writer—the renowned guitarist/producer ROY Z, (Tribe of Gypsies, Bruce Dickinson, Rob Halford, Sebastian Bach).
Chas knew Roy Z from touring together in South America when Roy was playing with Bruce Dickinson and Chas was on tour with The Jason Bonham Band. After that, they worked together writing/recording The Tribe Of Gypsies record “Dweller On The Threshold” which they promoted by touring together in Japan opening for KISS, Alice In Chains, and Paul Rodgers along with Dave “Chili” Moreno (Puddle Of Mudd, Tribe Of Gypsies) on drums who he’d been friends/brothers with for many years!
