Here are 8 rock musicians who will be performing at ‘Icons of Pinoy Rock’:
Hardcore fans will remember Resty from his Psyclones days. He made it big during the height of Pinoy Rock with his band Maria Cafra, which, to much delight, is back in business. Only a little bit shy of 70, Resty hasn’t lost one bit of his prowess on a guitar or his magic with writing music.
They’ve produced mic-clenching singles like “Halik ni Hudas,” “Mata ng Diyos,” and “Atomica”; they are also the lone Filipino rock band to have released albums in Japan and the United States. Artadi has won Vocalist of the Year at the NU107 Rock Awards several times.
