His Boy Elroy biography
There are at least two artists named His Boy Elroy:
1. The first was a band founded in January 1992 in Seattle by Johnny Fly (alias Johnny Stevens). Early on, Brian Vander Ark played with the group on guitar, but quit to form his own band before His Boy Elroy signed to a major label. The group's 1993 self-titled Epic Records album was constructed mainly in the studio. Most of the album was recorded at Scotland Yard Studios and produced by Karl Stephenson. Clark Stiles recorded and produced the tracks, "Fade to Black and "Don't Leave Me". Stiles and Stephenson co-produced the track "Closer to You". Also, with production remix work from Phil Harding and Ian Curnow on the "Chains" remix. Duncan Sheik made an appearance on the record, playing guitar on the song, "Closer to You". The record was similar in sound to groups such as Jesus Jones, EMF, and the Soup Dragons. The lead single from the record, "Chains", was a dance hit, reaching No. 7 on the Billboard Dance Club Play charts and No. 25 on the Maxi Singles charts. The song was also used during a party scene in the film Beethoven's 2nd. Another big song of theirs was "Fade to Black" which reached the Top 10 on Billboard as well. The song "Fly" appears almost in full length in the opening scene showing windsurfers on the tv series Baywatch in Episode S04E06, Tentacles.
Johnny Fly moved to Los Angeles and a band was assembled to tour behind the record, which included Forrest Breese on bass, Mario Rossi on drums, Scott Doyle on keyboards and percussion and Matt Waldrum on guitar. All band members are still active musicians and still perform independently and as His Boy Elroy. Fly, Breese, Waldrum and another drummer, Adrian Musolf have also writen songs as Pumping Ethyl, the alter ego punk band of His Boy Elroy. Current band members are Johnny Fly, Forrest Breese, Scott Doyle, Adrian Musolf, Mario Rossi and Matt Waldrum. See His Boy Elroy on Wikipedia for more info and links.
