Tommi Gallo plays drums in Spread Eagle. The group burst upon the scene playing a brand of rock that came straight from the NYC gutter. When Paul DiBartolo (guitar), Rob De Luca (bass) and Tommi Gallo moved to the City and met up with vocalist Ray West, a new attitude was instantly born.
While rehearsing/writing in a East Village basement for their first gig, rumors began leaking out to the record industry. The group was quickly snatched up and signed to MCA/Universal, then sent straight into the studio. Additional tunes for the debut album had to be written while recording was taking place.
The honesty of Spread Eagle's self-titled debut release quickly gained the band worldwide critical acclaim and propelled them to the forefront of the genre.
Four years later, after the release and touring of their second album, "Open To The Public", the band disbanded and went about their own personal projects.
