Now, in Guy-McCoy-Torme, handling both guitar and vocals, Torme has partnered with an his old compadre from Gillan-bassist John McCoy, who has worked with Joey Belladonna, Samson, the UK Subs among others. Lastly, there is Drummer Robin Guy, whose credentials include Faith No More and Bruce Dickinson. On the surface, GMT is a simple three-piece, yet the pedigree of the members is unbeatable.

Today, Wild West Promotions, located in the NY Metro area, with a dedicated fan of Mr. Torme at the helm, is in a search of sponsors and funding for the tour, experiencing first hand the challenges of such an affair. The Wild West began with an email in 2003 to Bernie Torme, the writer/ fan offering to put together such a tour. Now three years later, the Wild West is undaunted in that goal. We are proud to bring Bernie Torme to U.S. audiences. He has for far too long been one of the UK’s best kept secrets. And now with Guy-McCoy-Torme, he is with two mates that only compliment his blend of hard-edged guitar-based rock, his dash of punk attitude and even his bit of English alright. . .Irish wit.
