Ghosts of Sunset is an homage to the artists that sprung from the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles California USA. Our influences are all over the map, but a lot of common ground for us in in that 1980s “hair metal” scene. Ratt, Motley Crue, Quiet Riot, Poison, Faster Pussycat, LA Guns, etc… but our name also a tip of the hat to everything from Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, the Doors, the Byrds, Rodney Binghenheimer’s English Disco Buffalo Springfield, the Runaways. It was just such a rich breeding ground for fantastic music. As two Midwestern kids growing up in the late 1970s and 1980s it was akin to “Oz”. The promised land.
