Billy Stark Stone and Rico Blythe is a new project featuring the aforementioned. Billy Stark Stone was the lead singer and founding member of The Blessed NYC’S notorious and first and original teen “Punk “ band. While, Rico Blythe was the guitarist in a later incarnation. Having taken N.Y. by storm, not only with their live shows at Max’s Kansas City,CBGB’s, Mudd Club,the first band to play Club 57,the first band to
Hurrah’s and even played @The 21 club ! (that little adventure we'll save for the book) Along with immediate and continued lavish press coverage.
Billy Stark Stone and Rico Blythe have recently released two singles “Revolution Rerun “ and “Potter's Field” with accompanying videos.
The last few months they have engaged in a teasing disinformation campaign as to whether they will ever play live or if they are even capable of doing so via social media and the bands website
( also with accompanying videos)
Now, Billy Stark Stone and Rico Blythe are up and running performing live shows with more singles and videos to be released. And a whole slew of activities planned. Stay tuned !
According to Billy Stark Stone “Everything I have done up to now has been a dress rehearsal….NOW IT’S SHOWTIME !
Everything that has happened before had to have occurred before we could come along and put an exclamation point on all of it. This band could only exist at the exact moment that we do.
From a Super Fan who posted this on one of our social media sites and we had to share it
This is the show I have been needing for 25 years! Seems America just doesn't make local artists like they used to. Stone/Blythe bring so many wide-ranging entertainment influences to bare, watching them becomes an euphoric lesson in the history and range of American showmanship from the late 1800's thru today. Parlor songs, Vaudeville, Tin Pan Alley, Jump-Blues, Dancehall comedy, 1960's Girl-groups, Andy Warhol & Theatre of the Ridiculous, good old Rock n Roll from Buddy Holly to Bowie to moderns like Lady Gaga, all in the optimistic spirit of 1970's NYC cross-pollination between artistic mediums that knew anything was now possible! Just get out there and DO IT! This can be so much more than another barroom featuring predictable live music, it is an authentic American cultural mash-up with the potential to explode boundaries and bring everything together in a sum far greater than the sum of its parts. So put on your wildest fantasy outfit and come be part of the celebration. Let's bounce back to these guys the energy and love that fuels unforgettable live shows. You can be anything you want for just one night!
