"Make believe for real." - Michael Des Barres
The Marquis Michael Des Barres has been on the music and acting scene for more than four decades now. His latest album, Carnaby Street, features eleven energetic tracks, two of which were featured as the "Coolest Song of the Week" on Steven Van Zandt's Underground Garage radio show. Carnaby Street was inspired by Des Barres' experiences in the late 60s and early 70s, his enduring love of the Delta blues and rock 'n roll carrying forth from his days as front man for such seminal rock bands as Silverhead and Detective, personally signed by Jimmy Page to Swan Song Records.
Michael Des Barres was also the touring singer one of the most iconic acts of the 80s, The Power Station, with whom he performed at Live Aid, and a member of Chequered Past with Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols and Clem Burke and Nigel Harrison of Blondie. In 1983, Michael penned the hit song "Obsession," a number one hit in twenty-seven countries for the new wave group, Animotion.
Today, Michael Des Barres is among the rare new breed of healthy activist artists. Des Barres pushes boundaries as a multi-media force of nature, appearing in feature films such as the newly-released California Solo with Robert Carlyle and on innumerable hit television shows such as NCIS, Nip/Tuck, The Finder, Bones, Seinfeld and as the infamous assassin "Murdoc" on McGyver.
