A kid from from the projects in Cleveland who made his way to become the guitarist for Dead Boys, one of the most influential punk bands in the U.S., Cheetah Chrome has a longstanding legacy and a refusal to quit delivering amazingly intense punk rock. From his earliest work in the pre-Dead Boys Rocket From The Tombs (who actually saw never an official recorded release until 2002) to more recent releases like 2010's Batusis (a punk rock superduo comprised of Chrome and Sylvain Sylvain of the New York Dolls), he consistently delivers raw guitar-fueled power. And while his autobiography (Cheetah Chrome: A Dead Boy's Tale From the Front Lines of Punk Rock) may already be written, his showcase at SXSW is sure to prove his story's not over.
