For Joe Chiofalo, also known as
Joey Pajamas, dropping out of collage was
easy. Keeping a cover band working in the late 70's wasn't that
tough either. But when Joe started recording his original material
in his quest for the elusive "record deal", the usual pitfalls
ensued. Drummers found god..., bass players found love...,
guitar players found Wild Turkey..., and Joe found himself
starting from scratch again and again. Finally, after a few
more cover bands and a few years of session work, Joe landed
the gig playing keyboards for the legendary rockers "the SAINTS".
After two records and two tours with them, he started playing
the accordion with "Mary Lee's Corvette". This is when he met
Stephen Butler, the song-writing guitarist of "Smash Palace"
who would soon produce ORANGE & BLACK for
ZIP Records. |
