Spyz Call Their Tune and 'Go for the Throat'

Richard Cromelin, Los Angeles Times, 5 July 1989

JIMI HAZEL got hooked on the guitar when he was 6 years old and his brother took him to see Jimi Hendrix at the 1970 New York Pop Festival. Years later, he teamed with some musicians who were into jazz and fusion, reggae and heavy metal. Their accelerated hard-rock drew an audience of slam-dancing, punk-rockers, and they got an album deal.
