Bernie Tormé has enjoyed a long and remarkable career. Hit records, world tours and international acclaim came as lead guitarist in Gillan.

Bernie stepped in for Ozzy Osbourne in the aftermath of guitar legend Randy Rhoads’ tragic death before going on to front Electric Gypsies and Tormé.

Teaming up with Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider and Iron Maiden’s drummer Clive Burr he formed Desperado and later reunited with ex-Gillan colleague, John McCoy and drummer Robin Guy in Guy McCoy Tormé (GMT).

More recently, Bernie Tormé has been touring with Chris Heilmann (bass) and Ian Harris (drums) releasing two critically-acclaimed solo albums,’Flowers & Dirt’ (2014) and ‘Blackheart’ (2015). Both were crowdfunded, connecting Bernie directly with his fans.
