Austin,TX transplant Paul Lidel has been kicking ass in a number of hard rock bands over the years. Sadly, if you were to bring his name up amongst rock fans, the majority of the people wouldn’t know who he was.
The bands that he has been members of over the years have put out some great hard rock records, and that is due to the excellent guitar playing and back up vocals Paul Lidel provides with each new release.
The first time that I have heard any music featuring Paul, was the 1988, Max Norman produced release by Dirty Looks, called Cool From the Wire.
Dirty Looks went on to put out several records over the years of which Paul played lead guitar on.
In 1994, Paul took over the lead guitar slot with Jason McMaster’s band Dangerous Toys, and later formed Broken Teeth, with McMaster in 1999.
In 2007, Paul has joined a new band, Adrenaline Factor, that has quite a bit of buzz going for them right now.
Paul has been playing live since he was 14 years old, and has been kicking ass ever since.
