Nasty Savage  


Formed in 1983 by pro wrestling wannabe Ronnie Galetti, Nasty Savage gained a healthy underground following thanks to their over-the-top live shows (smashing TVs and the like) and their aggresive, thrash power metal style, quite inventive at the time. For whatever reason, though, they became another band that never achieved the fame that their early potential demonstrated. Difficulties plagued the band at the bassist position, as one (Chris Moorhouse) was killed in a car accident, another (Fred Dreschigan) quit due to a hand injury, and yet another (Dezso Bartha) reportedly forced to resign due to family pressures (according to the reports, he would have been denied a generous inheritance had he remained in the band). They broke up following four releases in the late 80's, were dormant for much of the nineties, and then periodically reformed briefly every now and again, once long enough to record in 2004. They had announced that their gig in May 2012 would be their last ever, but as of early 2016 a new version of the band is active.
