Mike CondelloFrom: Phoenix, Arizona, USA

Originally with the Beatles-parody Commodore Condello’s Salt River Navy Band, Condello went onto form his own solo band in 1968. The album Phase 1 was released in 1968 on Scepter Records. The album is almost like listening to a compilation, because of the way it jumps from pop-psych to fuzz garage rock. Highlights on the album include “Oh No” and “The Other Side Of You.”

Mike Condello worked in the music business for four decades. He served as the music director for two local Phoenix TV shows (Teen Beat and The Wallace & Ladmo Show), lead bands like Hub Cap & The Wheels and Commodore Condello’s Salt River Navy Band, and played with the likes of Keith Moon, The Tubes, and Jackson Browne. Sadly, Condello committed suicide in the ’90s after suffering from severe depression.
