Troy Patrick Farrell
Raised in Griffith, IN, Farrell made the move to Los Angeles in 1992. He has played with many of the bands or musicians he grew up listening to.
In the past TPF has played with Jani Lane (Warrant), Bulletboys, Gene Loves Jezebel, Tod Howarth (Frehley’s Comet) John Corabi (Motley Crue, The Scream) , CC Deville of Poison, Gilby Clarke (Guns N Roses) and most notably known for a long stint in White Lion, putting out DVD’s, as well as both live and studio albums.
Through the time in White Lion, Farrell hit nearly 40 countries, some stand out shows were soccer stadiums in India where the band performed their final shows in front of over 40,000 people.
TPF is currently endorsed by Rockett Drum Works, Sabian Cymbals, Vater Percussion, Aquarian Drumheads, Beato Bags and Cool Claws.
Having found a new home in “Tantric” has reinvigorated my need to be creative again, being a part of a “band”, vs. being more of a “hired gun”. I like both roles for different reasons, but when you’re a kid, you want to be in a “band”… not necessarily just the hired guy. I’m stoked to have a new album out in this day and age with a band of guys I really love, and despite the fact Tantric has nearly a 2 decade history, it sort of feels brand new again…

GILBY CLARKE GET’S HIS YA-YA’S OUT
Okay, this guy Gilby Clarke was in Guns N’ Roses. He also played guitar for the MC5 , Nancy Sinatra, Heart and now Rockstar: Supernova.
He twiddled production knobs for internationally lauded, tumbledown punks The Bronx, LA Guns & Alice Cooper. More importantly, he’s made a bunch of records that rock ’n’ roll purists the world over treasure and occasionally argue about.
If that ain’t a cache of cred, than what is?
But forget all that. What you should know is this: Gilby Clarke understands rock ’n’ roll; hell, his heart pumps the shit.
As a singer, guitarist and songwriter he’s an old-school mash-up of Keef, Johnny Thunders, and B.B. King.
See, the tousled guitar hero was but a 17 -year-old Cleveland punk when he split for the sparkly glit of Hollywood. A fresh-off-the-bus cliché? Nah, Clarke made it all his own.
